ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

It is inherent to humans to decorate and beautify ourselves--from our heads right down to our toes-- with adornments that delight our senses. This extraordinary necklace, hailing from the Belle Epoque-era of France, is a breathtaking beauty. Painstakingly restored by our master jeweler, it is an exquisite work of tiny leaves and scrolls--frosted with glittering European and rose-cut diamonds--and lacy openwork patterns, all embracing a diamond-set focal piece, evocative of a heart in shape, that sparkles brilliantly with a 1.83 carat European-cut diamond. Shining on each side of the captivating confection is a floral-esque element, each culminating in a dazzling European-cut stone (2.60 carats total weight), while glittering diamond-set leaves and bezel-set stones complete the necklace. And, speaking to ornamentation that crowns the head, this necklace--hand fabricated in platinum, which made the creation of these light and lacy designs possible--is ingeniously designed to convert into a tiara by adding a supporting 14K gold band (affixed by screws). When worn as a tiara, several feather plumes, which accompany the piece, can be inserted into a small receptacle at the center top for a touch of playful elegance. A rare and ravishing (and versatile) treasure. Total diamond weight, 12.00 carats. Necklace measures 16 1/4 Inch.

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.
