ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A sweetheart if there ever was one! A lustrous pearl-studded heart is enwrapped in fanciful, flowing pastel pink and green enameled ribbons in this romantic and ravishing Art Nouveau rarity by San Francisco's preeminent jeweler of yesteryear (and still going strong) - Shreve & Company. Expertly hand fabricated in 14K yellow gold, circa turn-of-the-20th-century, the heart measures 1 1/8 by 1 inch, the enamel shows mild wear commensurate with age of necklace

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.
