ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Two fabulous lockets in one! Measuring a striking 1 5/8 inch diameter (2 1/4 inches tall with bail), this very Frenchy pendant locket--substantially crafted in rich 14K yellow gold--is embellished with a fanciful raised floral design and is set on one side with 33 vibrant green Colombian emeralds, and on the other with the same array of rich red Burmese rubies. The matching bail is also set on both sides. An opulent, rare and ravishing work of wearable art. Circa mid-to-late 1800s. The locket is strung on an 18K yellow gold flat cable chain measuring 31 inches 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.
