ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A treat for the eyes--and your neckline--this colorful and delightfully detailed pendant (formerly a brooch) is centered by a rich burnt orange carnelian disk with an intaglio carving of a distinguished bearded gent. The vibrant focal piece is set in a circular frame artfully adorned with blue, green, and white cloisonne enamel, and small flowers fashioned with classic Etruscan Revival style decoration techniques. Tiny gold spheres encircle the perimeter, adding the final flourish to this uniquely striking and stunning Victorian adornment. Hand fabricated in 18K gold, circa 1875. 14K gold chain measures 18 inches. Condition note: there is damage (missing enamel) in one of the areas of cloisonne (priced accordingly).

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.
