ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Rare, ravishing, and remarkable, this jewel hails from a period of extraordinary craftsmanship--the Art Nouveau era, circa 1900. The necklace presents a pendant with characteristic sinuous vines of gleaming gold, culminating in two sweet flowers that are embellished above by a crisply sparkling old mine-cut diamond and beneath with a luminous blue cabochon sapphire, while a small flower-topped sapphire dangles below. This wondrous work of wearable art connects to a double chain--punctuated by complementary stations centered by old mine-cut diamonds and sapphires--that transitions to a single chain via larger versions of the bell-shaped blooms. A singular, superb and collectible adornment. Total diamond weight - 1.45 carats, total sapphire weight - 3.15 carats. Hand fabricated in 18K gold. Chain measures 17 inches, center drop is 1 1/2 inches long.

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.
