ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Get ready for some fun jewelry show and tell. First of all, you'll most likely have to explain that this intriguing Mid-Century brooch is a replica of a chestnut bud blooming on a branch. Then--here's the fun part--you get to open the bud to reveal 15 bright raspberry-red ruby cabochons masquerading as chestnuts. Everyone will be most impressed. Total ruby weight, 4.00 carats. Artfully crafted in 18K gold, by way of 1950s-60s France, it measures 1 3/4 by just over 1 1/4 inches.

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.
