INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

This textured pin-striped locket by Carter, Gough & Co. is handsome indeed, and is quite unlike any we've seen. The octagonal holder of sentiment opens to reveal four hinged-connected frames which, when unfolded, currently displays what appears to be three generations--a grandmother, mother, and a smiling baby in a bonnet. When folded, the hand engraved front side reads," A testimonial of love to Louis Bernstein from Adith Joseph, October First, Nineteen Hundred and Twenty." The face of the locket is engraved with "LB." An extraordinary collectable. In 14K gold. Chain measures 18 inches.

About Art Deco Jewelry

Sleek and modern, Art Deco design brought jewelry into the machine age. Yet these stylish pieces still found room for the fine forms and lines of previous eras within their elegant architecture. In particular, we see many peaceful co-habitations of Edwardian and Art Deco styles together.

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.
