ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

From turn-of-the-20th-century France--called the French Second Empire or the Third Republic--comes this striking and versatile jewel that defies easy categorization. Measuring a quite conspicuous 3 1/4 inches long, a radiant geometric sunburst, artfully designed and hand-fabricated in gleaming 18K rose gold and highlighted with platinum accents, is centered by a lustrous cluster of natural button pearls. The 1 1/4 inch wide sunburst supports seven lengthy dancing tassels, each centered with a platinum dot (matching the sunburst's border) and culminating in a buttercup-set pearl, all of which are surmounted by a very French-y leafy element. Bonus! The aforementioned tassel section is removable so that the sunburst can be worn solo as either a pendant or brooch. Second bonus! The sunburst is outfitted on the reverse with a small round glass-covered display locket compartment. A singular and sensational, rare and ravishing antique showpiece. The new 14K rose gold 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.
