ABOUT THIS BRACELET

Belle Epoque is French for "Beautiful Epoch," a time in European French history (between 1871-80 and the beginning of WW1) when art, in all forms, flourished. This marvelous masterpiece is an exemplary jewel of the era. The color of the eight beautiful bright cornflower blue sapphires (29 carats total weight) is wonderfully enhanced by octagonal frames set with lively European-cut diamonds, joined together via openwork square links, each set with a quartet of European cuts centered by a glittering old mine cut. Magnifique! Total diamond weight, 4.75 carats. Sapphires accompanied by a gemological report from Stone Group Laboratories stating Natural. No Indications of Thermal Enhancement. Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Hand fabricated in platinum, it measures 7 1/2 inches. Condition note: two of the old mine-cut diamonds have chips commensurate with the age of the piece. sapphires show general wear, one sapphire has an eye visible indented natural.

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.
