ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

We don't know much about the jewelry firm of Bippart, Griscom & Osborn, but judging from a couple other pieces we've owned in the past, they specialized in graceful, colorfully enameled Art Nouveau jewels featuring large and lustrous freshwater pearls - and here's a sterling example. The organically inspired design incorporates sinuous, winding reeds, colored in shaded green enamel, studded here and there with tiny seed pearls, enwrapping the aforementioned freshwater pearls sprouting from violet enameled petals. A singular and enchanting work of wearable jewelry art. The two-part lavaliere measures 2 1/2 inches before transitioning to the 16 inch gold chain.

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.
