INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Turquoise has the oldest documented history of all gems. First used in Mesopotamia, there are beads that date back 5000 years. For the Native American Apaches, following a rainbow resulted not in a pot of gold but of turquoise, and it was thought beneficial in aiding the accuracy of a hunter’s aim. In the 21st century, turquoise continues to make a fabulous--and eye-catching--statement as this striking jewel proves. Folded woven 'ribbons' of gold--each accented with two brightly sparkling round brilliant-cut diamonds and single cabochon turquoise--link together creating a beautifully dimensional necklace that culminates in a pendant of gleaming, vibrant robin's egg blue cabochon turquoises, a curvaceous pear shape that dangles from an oval stone. For a lovely balance, the clasp is set with an oval stone. The beauty of turquoise lives on, and its story continues with you. Total diamond weight, 1.00 carat. Crafted in 18K gold (clasp is 14K), circa the second half of the last century, it measures 16 inches. Pear-shaped turquoise accompanied by a gemological report from Stone Group Laboratories stating: Natural. No indications of polymers or dyes.

About Estate Jewelry

Though it calls to mind grand manor houses in the English countryside, “estate” is just a fancy way of describing any piece of jewelry with a previous owner. That’s pretty much everything in our collection. We tend to use “estate” to refer to pieces in our collection with a more modern or contemporary design, or vintage-inspired designs. These perennial gems are selected in harmony with our original antique and vintage pieces…they’re just a little bit younger!

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.
