ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Found only in one deposit in the Brazilian town called Ouro Preto, pink topaz is a rare beauty in the world of gems. Three of these glorious stones--with a light and lovely cotton candy hue--sparkle merrily in this charming late-Edwardian-era lavaliere (circa turn-of-the-20th-century), their beauty enhanced by 12 glimmering bezel-set old-mine cut diamonds,  a single gold leaf, and a bright and lively .45 carat old mine cut drop dancing below. A sweet, feminine and captivating confection. Total topaz weight - 5.30 carats, total diamond weight - .95 carat. Hand fabricated in 15K gold (hence of British origin). The 18K gold chain measures 14 1/2 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.
