ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Extraordinary timepiece. Exquisite necklace. Enchanting work of art. This ravishing and arresting Edwardian pendant watch necklace is all of these and more. The hexagonal shaped pendant is artfully pierced and frosted with glimmering rose-cut diamonds, the front centered with ballet slipper-pink enamel overlaid with a diamond-set wreath that encircles a larger stone. When there is time to tell, the reverse presents a pink enamel-rimmed timepiece by Boucheron of Paris. The miniature masterpiece connects to a woven chain of luminous seed pearls--punctuated by diamond-set navette-shaped stations--via an openwork ornamental element that shimmers with a mix of old mine, single, and rose-cut diamonds. An utterly captivating collectable - circa 1915. Total diamond weight, 3.65 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum. Chain measures 24 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.
