ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

As different as two colors can be, black and white are always striking when they come together--especially when sparkle and a little shimmer are also in the mix. This exquisite Art Deco jewel, hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1925, has them all. Gleaming black onyx, sleekly sculpted in the shape of an open, slightly flared oval, shines at its center with a 'flower' cluster--a European-cut diamond encircled by single cuts--that dangles from from a column of bezel-set stones. Embellished north and south with decorative elements set with tiny glimmering rose-cut diamonds, the pendant suspends from a fabulous chain of lustrous seed pearls and cylindrical onyx beads by way of a diamond-set connector. A case of opposites attracting--beautifully. Total diamond weight, .70 carat.  Chain measures 18 inches. Condition note: onyx has a crack likely original to its making.

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.
