ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

Oh, my, where to start? It would not be inappropriate to encase this exquisite brooch and display it in a fine museum for all the world to see. And yet, it is to be worn--as a watch or as a brooch. The front of this extraordinary timepiece is decorated with guilloche engraving overlaid by a deep aubergine-hued translucent enamel accented with a lacy leaf-like design dotted by tiny rose and single-cut diamonds. Surrounded by a halo, graceful ribbons, and a scallop-edged louver design, all shining with diamonds, it suspends from a graceful bow by way of diamond-set chains. The reverse reveals an easy-to-read golden-hued dial with a radial guilloche design that creates an intriguing, shimmering optical effect, while a cabochon sapphire gleams on the crown. An utterly exquisite masterful work of wearable art from famed New York jeweler, T. B. Starr. Circa 1900. Total diamond weight, 1.60 carats. Crafted in platinum.

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.
