ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A pair of pretty pale pastel blue aquamarines are the central attraction of this light and lovely, and ever so feminine, Edwardian/Art Nouveau lavalière necklace hand fabricated in 14K yellow gold (18K gold chain) - circa 1900. The curvaceous stylized heart-shaped design is modestly embellished with tiny seed pearls and foliate motifs, and culminates below with a dangling freshwater feather pearl. Sweet & lovely. Total length (including width of centerpiece) measures 21 1/4 inches.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
