ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Roses and rubies. With its unique curvilinear shape, this lovely openwork lavaliere--elegant and elaborate in design--is delicately fashioned with twinkling rose-cut diamonds and rubies. Sinuous curves, slender leaves, and a small chevron shape, all set with glittering stones, create an exquisite surround for the .50 carat oval rose-cut diamond--bearing an intriguing light earthy brown color with a hint of silvery-gray--that dangles from a 'crown' of vibrant pinkish-red rubies. For an extra bit of brightness and lustrous sheen, a trio of rubies gleams at the top, creating a cap of color above a shimmering natural pearl, while a single natural pearl, accented with a ruby, dances below. Fabulous and feminine. Total diamond weight - .60 carat, total ruby weight - .30 carat. Hand fabricated in platinum over 14K gold, circa 1900-1910. Chain measures 17 1/2 inches, total length of the necklace (including the width of the pendant) is 18 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.
