ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Created in France sometime during the 2nd Republic and 2nd Empire, this wonderful work of wearable history would be right at home in a French Royal portrait painting. Centering on a gleaming rich raspberry-red cabochon (aka carbuncle) garnet, the intriguing gemstone is elegantly framed in 18K rosy-yellow gold lattice work, beaded around the perimeter, and studded all around with glittering rose-cut diamonds set in silver rosettes. A dangling natural pearl drop and a matching bale add the finishing flourishes to this ravishing and regal French jewel. Hand fabricated. Total diamond weight, .25 carat. The 18-inch chain is 10K rose gold.

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.
