ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Handmade in the late-19th / early 20th century, pretty pastel hues of pink topaz and aquamarine alternate on hand-fabricated knife-edge fringe in this enchanting Edwardian necklace. 4.50 carats of pink topaz and 4.00 carats of aquamarine are framed by delicately carved prongs, each length of fringe suspended from a link in the chain, allowing the necklace to conform to the shape of the wearer. At some point in its life a newer extension chain was added at the back, bringing the necklace to 18 inches.The fringe ranges from 1/2 inch to one inch long. Singular and sublime.

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.
