ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A truly fabulous and sizable antique swivel locket (and make-up mirror) combination from the very late 19th century or very early 20th century, emblazoned with the profile of Diana - goddess of the hunt. Here she is, encircled with a flowing garland of leaves, with her quiver of arrows over her shoulder and beautifully rendered in 14k yellow gold repousse with a soft, velvety patina. A tad over 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Entrancing.

About Art Nouveau Jewelry

Looking to go organic? Bummed out (with good reason) by the Industrial Revolution, Art Nouveau makers embraced the natural world and a return to the hand-craftsmanship of an earlier time. Their overlap with both the Victorian and Edwardian eras resulted in a great deal of cross-pollination. Though relatively short in its purest form, Art Nouveau’s flowing lines continued to weave their way into fine jewelry.

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.
