ABOUT THESE ACCESSORIES

A rare collectable from the San Francisco 49ers - the original gold miners, not the football team. This truly extraordinary keepsake is composed of two thick and substantially proportioned (1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches) gold-in-quartz plaques that serve as book covers for two golden, double-sided, masterfully and intricately hand-engraved pages that read: "During his service of Sac. Chap. No.3, its membership was increased from 62 to 111, a debt of $800 paid, furniture worth $1000 purchased, $600 left in the Treas-y - Dec. 27th 1860- 'Well done good and faithful servant.' This mark of esteem is presented by companions of Sac. R.A. Chapter No 3 F & A.M. to H.H. Hartley elected E.H.P. Dec 1858, Dec 1859 and M.E. G.H.P. of the G.R.A. Chap. of Cal. May 1860" .
An angelic harpist adorns the final page. Spectacular!

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.
