ABOUT THIS BROOCH

She flies through the air with the greatest of ease, and never comes down! This exquisitely bejeweled water fowl (aka duck), artfully fashioned in 15ct. gold, hails from early-twentieth century Great Britain - presumably from a fancy country manor house. Her wings and abdomen are studded with lustrous white seed pearls trimmed with bright lime green demantoid garnets, and her head and neck glisten with bright red rubies. She's fabulous and measures 1 3/4 by 3/4 inches. One wing is engraved 'Brenda' on the reverse.

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.
