ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Utterly amazing! We've never seen anything quite like this 3 3/4 inch-long, one-of-a-kind wonder.* Culminating on top with a gorgeous 2.55 carat deep apple-green demantoid garnet (from the Ural Mountains of Russia), the rare and radiant gemstone centers shimmering white natural pearl petals and tiny diamond-set stamens, all of which are supported below by a smaller demantoid garnet-centered flower, diamond-set swirls, small bezel-set opals and rubies, and a creeping vine set with smaller faceted oval demantoid garnets. Expertly and artfully hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold, during the first or second decade of the twentieth century. A truly rare, remarkable and ravishing collectable work of jewelry art. French import mark. Bonus! *From the estate of a renowned A-list Hollywood actor (only to be revealed upon purchase ;).

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.
