ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Lockets never cease to amaze. Their beauty and style range from the exquisitely restrained to the wonderfully ornate. This Edwardian-era masterwork in glorious black and white features a gleaming oval of carved onyx and is adorned with a bright white platinum navette shape embellished with a brilliant 1.20 carat European cut diamond, kissed above and beneath by a luminous natural pearl. Lacy, exquisitely worked filigree, sparkling with European and rose cut diamonds, creates an elegant frame for this pendant locket that opens to reveal a porcelain portrait (something not commonly seen) of a handsome gentleman. Hand fabricated, it suspends from an 18-inch chain. Condition note: The beautiful porcelain photograph has been well-loved and is chipped. A rare and unusual technique, we left it as is, and we leave you to muse about the life and times of the subject or to replace it with a photo of someone you actually know and love.

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.
