ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Because the method of creating cultured pearls did not exist in the Edwardian era, natural pearls were precious indeed and more highly valued than diamonds. Crowned by a lively antique single-cut diamond, a natural saltwater pearl--measuring 19.16 by 7.86. by 7.02 millimeters and shimmering with touches of rose iridescence-- dangles inside a teardrop-shaped frame set with glittering single and rose-cut diamonds and suspends from a chain that adjusts to 18 inches. Pearl perfection. Hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1910. Accompanied by a GIA Pearl Identification Report stating: Natural Pearl, Saltwater, Pinctada species. No indications of treatment.

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.
