ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

As exquisite as can be, this exceptional and distinctively stunning Edwardian jewel, dating back to the first or second decade of the twentieth century, features a pair of ocean gems: two natural saltwater (aka Oriental) button pearls. One is shimmering white and dangles from bezel-set diamond-studded knife wires, the other has an iridescent black hue and is dramatically framed in sparkling white diamonds and crystalline red triangular rubies. Delicately and expertly hand fabricated in platinum over 14K rosy-yellow gold, this breathtaking beauty measures 2 3/8 inches long. The newer platinum chain measures 16 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.
