INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Measuring just over 2 inches long, the graceful double whiplash design of this ravishing old world lavalière transitions from the late-Victorian era to the brief turn-of-the-20th-century Art Nouveau period. The charming antique jewel is studde all around with small lustrous seed pearls, and dotted here and there with five tiny round sparklers. Hand fabricated in warmly burnished 15ct. gold, hence of British origin. Bail and 16-inch chain are 14K gold.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

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.
