ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Boasting a 4 and 1/4 inch wingspan, this may be the most phenomenal eagle brooch of all time! Dating from the-turn-of-the-last century and, based on the 18ct. mark, more than likely of British origin, he/she sweeps through the sky with a natural pearl in its talons and a sparkling diamond in its beak. Both sides are intricately hand engraved with a realistic feathery texture. Its wings are outlined on top with streaks of channel-set rich red rubies (synthetic and original to the piece). A regal eagle and a truly striking and spectacular fine feathered friend for life.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
