ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

If you're born between July 23rd and August 22nd, Leo is your sign and, lucky you, we've got just jewel to show the world how fabulous you are. Represented by the Lion--the kings and queens of the jungle--Leos are vivacious, creative, passionate and are natural born leaders. The one that graces the front of this pendant locket sits in profile, his paw perched atop a midnight blue synthetic sapphire, keeping watch with a fiery red synthetic ruby eye (both original to the piece and period). On the reverse, five twinkling round brilliant cuts create the zodiac constellation symbol. Ready to roar? In 14K gold, it opens to reveal a photo compartment. Chain measures 18 inches.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
