ABOUT THESE EARRINGS

Be ready for gasps of delight whenever you wear these rare and riveting Russian earrings. And, be prepared to enlighten said gaspers about the composition of these beguiling jewels. In the same mineral family as emeralds--although with a much lighter and quite lovely hue--these sumptuous and elegantly elongated green beryl drops have the faintest hint of color and are naturally decorated by wispy inclusions which reflect a slight silvery shimmer. Set in milgrain-edged bezels, each stone is embellished with a sash of leaves twinkling with tiny rose-cut diamonds and suspends from a lever back closure set with a lively old mine-cut. Singular beauties. Total diamond weight, .30 carat. Hand fabricated in 14K gold and silver, circa 1910.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
