ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Measuring just shy of 3 inches long, and superbly hand fabricated in silver over 18K rose gold, this ravishing and romantic hardstone cameo lavalière pendant, from late-19th century France, features an elegant neoclassical muse draped in a diaphanous white gown, artfully hand carved in glossy black sardonyx. Glittering rose-cut diamonds and a trio of natural pearls highlight the elegantly stylized lyre motif. An exquisite antique jewel. The newer darkened silver chain measures 18 inches.

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.
