ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

From turn-of-the-last-century Great Britain comes this rare and ravishing opal and diamond necklace hand fabricated in silver over 15ct. yellow gold. Double swags alternate with enchanting multi-chromatic pastel-hued opals and sparkling old mine-cut diamonds culminating in the center with a matching removable opal drop for fancier occasions. A resplendent and romantic late-Victorian/early-Edwardian adornment (circa 1890-1900). 15 3/4 inches. 11.50 carats total gemstone weight, 4.25 carats total diamond weight.

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.
