INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

This captivating and curvaceous confection is exemplary of the delicately fashioned, light and airy aesthetic of the early 20th century Edwardian era (although in this case, the concurrent French design period). An utterly alluring array of elements--scrolls, a delightful bow, flowers, curling leafy vines--all glittering with a mix of European, single, round brilliant, old mine and single-cut diamonds, coalesce to create this lacy piece of pretty for your neckline. From the land of all things bright and beautiful--France. Total diamond weight, 1.00 carat. Hand fabricated in platinum. Chain measures 16 inches and adjusts to 19 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.
