Taking a refreshing turn from the design aesthetic of the Industrial revolution in Europe (which included lots of mourning jewelry), the Arts & Crafts movement introduced an unbridled use of bright enameled color, graceful free-flowing designs, and gleaming cabochons to the era's alluring adornments. This splendid pendant presents a glossy marbled apple green double-cabochon jade, encircled by a beautifully patinated gold frame embellished with a curling vine and leaf motif. Dangling below is a smaller cabochon jade topped by a sprig of leaves, its spiraling tendrils caressing the sides of the stone. The vibrant composition suspends from a 17 1/2 inch chain by way of a two-leaf bail. Hand fabricated in 14K gold, circa turn-of-the-20th-century. Accompanied by a gemological report from Stone Group Laboratories stating: Natural. No indications of polymers or dyes. Myanmar (Burma), origin.

About Vintage Jewelry

Like fine wine, fine jewelry also has a “vintage”—the design period or era from which it hails. Victorian or Edwardian, Art Deco or Retro, each piece in our collection has its own special pedigree. But just because one era ended and another began, it doesn’t mean that creative jewelry makers simply forgot the lessons of the past! Many of the jewels in our cases refuse to conform to a single design period, either by striking out on their own or showing the transition from one era to the next. When such daring dazzlers are over one hundred years old, they’re generally grouped in the antique category. Anything younger than that, but still made before 1970, fits the vintage label. Every iconic era yields both singular and transitional pieces, like the ones we’ve assembled here. Follow the link at the end of each section for more about the aesthetics and history of the period.

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.
