ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

We imagine that while Little Miss Muffet was sitting on her tuffet eating her curds and whey, if along came this spider and sat down beside her, she would not have been frightened away. On the contrary, she would have made this spider her own--and so can you! The alluring arachnid has a mesmerizing 3.60 carat opal body--imbued with iridescent hues of blue, green, orange, gold, and violet-blue and sparkles all around with 20 lively rose-cut diamonds. With a lustrous freshwater pearl for its head, the bejeweled specimen's eight legs, as well as its eyes, are brightened by electric green demantoid garnets (from the Ural Mountains of Russia). Too cool for the web, it's looking for a more stylish place to hang out--your neckline or lapel? Total diamond weight, .65 carat. Crafted in 14K gold, circa 1900, it suspends from an 18-inch chain and can also be worn as a brooch.

About Vintage Jewelry

Like fine wine, fine jewelry also has a “vintage”—the design period or era from which it hails. Victorian or Edwardian, Art Deco or Retro, each piece in our collection has its own special pedigree. But just because one era ended and another began, it doesn’t mean that creative jewelry makers simply forgot the lessons of the past! Many of the jewels in our cases refuse to conform to a single design period, either by striking out on their own or showing the transition from one era to the next. When such daring dazzlers are over one hundred years old, they’re generally grouped in the antique category. Anything younger than that, but still made before 1970, fits the vintage label. Every iconic era yields both singular and transitional pieces, like the ones we’ve assembled here. Follow the link at the end of each section for more about the aesthetics and history of the period.

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.
