ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

There's a lot going on in this exquisitely detailed Edwardian jewel, delicately hand fabricated in platinum over 18K gold during the first or second decade of the twentieth century. The horizontal navette-shaped wreath motif centerpiece shimmers with a pair of tiny lustrous pearl strands and glitters with tiny rose-cut diamonds, all of which are accented with rich royal blue synthetic* calibre sapphires, while a trio of bezel-set diamond knife-wire drops dance below. A truly breathtaking and finely made feminine lavalière. The original platinum chain measures 18 inches. *Back in the early-20th-century, due to their color consistency and flawless clarity, synthetic sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts, their differences discernible only with a microscope.

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.
