ABOUT THESE EARRINGS

Dating back to the 1870s (circa 1867-1872 according to the hallmarks), these rare and ravishing survivors from the late great Austro-Hungarian Empire (Vienna, Prague or Budapest perhaps), measuring 1 3/4 inches long (they drop a bit further from the ear wires), glint in the center with a pair of light-catching rose-cut diamonds accented with black enameled buttercup settings. Minute braiding and intricate hand engraving contribute to the classic Victorian era ornamentation. Hand fabricated and warmly patinated 14K yellow gold.

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.
