ABOUT THIS BROOCH

This antique,9K yellow gold, Victorian bar pin features an impressively sized spider, so realistically rendered, that it looks like it will come alive. Inspired by the expeditions of men like Darwin, natural subjects incorporating plants, insects and animals were Victorian favorites. The spider's abdomen is fashioned out of a bezel-set faceted citrine, and its thorax features a seed pearl. The bar pin measures 3" in length and the spider measures slightly over an inch in length.

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.
