ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

St. George--the Patron Saint of England who, according to legend, was revered for his bravery in slaying the vicious dragon that once terrorized a 12th century town--is bedecked in colorful armor and represented in full slaying glory on this extraordinary and intriguing pendant of Austo-Hungarian provenance (circa turn-of-the-20th-century). With spear in hand, he stands astride the formidable beast--exquisitely crafted with a shimmering blister pearl for a body and a neck and tail colored with electric green enamel (his back side bearing a beautifully rendered scalar pattern)--ready to end his reign of terror once and for all. This tale told with gems is embellished with a blister pearl drop and suspends from sterling silver chain that adjusts to 18 inches.

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.
