ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Intricately hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold (pin settings are 14K) during the first or second decade of the twentieth century, this utterly stunning and exquisite Edwardian masterpiece features a glorious ocean gem--a lustrous white natural saltwater (a.k.a. Oriental) button pearl measuring 9.56 millimeters. Accompanied by a GIA Pearl Identification Report, the pearl is artfully enveloped all around by a glittering diamond-set neoclassical wreath suspended from an elegantly elongated diamond-set bow. Refined old world elegance par excellence. The bow extension is detachable to allow it to be worn as both a pendant necklace or circular brooch. 2 1/4 inches, 1 1/8 inch diameter.16-inch chain. Total diamond weight, 2.50 carats.

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.
