ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Recognizable by its intricately wrought metal designs and use of brightly colored stones, Austro-Hungarian jewelry will add an exotic touch of Boho-like chic to any ensemble, from your weekend white t-shirt to your little black dress. This lively locket and matching chain are studded with berry-red garnets, bright blue turquoise, and smoky citrines. Fancy engraving on both sides adds a final flourish. 1872-1922 (according to the hallmarks, but most likely leaning toward the earlier date). Crafted in silver highlighted with a light gold wash. Pendant measures 1 by 1 1/2 inches, 16 1/2 inch chain. Condition note: several replacement jump rings are not silver.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

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.
