ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Art Nouveau lockets never fail to captivate with their extraordinary and exquisite artistry. This one, with its curvilinear urn-like (or sarcophagus) shape, is rendered in rich 18K gold with a bright, yet soft, gleam that enhances the multidimensional characteristic whiplash and flowing floral motifs of the era adorning the face. Midnight blue cabochon sapphires and twinkling single-cut diamonds are creatively set to form a striking and distinctive design, adding color and sparkle to this alluring antique treasure - circa 1900. Other than the fairly common round shapes, original Art Nouveau pendant lockets are rarities. Total sapphire weight, .53 carat. In 18K gold, it measures 1 1/8 by 1 3/4 inches. 18-inch chain. Condition note: back has a small dent.

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.
