ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Rather unexpectedly hailing from Germany, around the turn-of-the-20th-century, this fetching festoon early-Art Nouveau necklace--fashioned like a wondrous web--is an openwork beauty strikingly accented with glossy white enamel and dotted with shimmering seed and natural pearls. Adding sparkle and color in the lightest of pastel blues, a dangling oval aquamarine centers the impressive (measures 2 1/4 by 3 inches) and captivating confection, while a pear-shaped stone dances below. The total length of necklace (including width of centerpiece) is 16 1/4 inches. Hand fabricated in 9K gold. Stamped Germany.

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.
