ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A charming confection of many lovely things, the focal piece of this Art Nouveau lavalier presents a gleaming soft blue turquoise heart--accented beneath with a bright old mine-cut diamond--in a swirling openwork design of the era's iconic whiplash design (a metaphor for artistic freedom). Adding to the graceful movement of the piece are two shimmering Baroque freshwater pearl dangles and a sage-green pear-shaped cabochon turquoise drop. The artful assemblage connects to a gleaming cable chain. Crafted in 14K gold, circa 1900. Chain measures 13 1/4 inches, total length including width of center piece is 14 3/4 inches.

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.
