ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

So bold, so glamorous--so Retro! Nothing says Retro like lots of gold, rubies and moonstones, and this flat-out fabulous pendant/brooch has them all. An expanse of brightly gleaming gold, artfully shaped as a stylized heart, glows at the top with a moonstone presenting a billowy blue sheen, embraced by a ribbon of shimmering single-cut diamonds and by crescent that glimmers with graduated electric cherry-red rubies. A second unseen heart peaks out from one side boasting a moonstone and a single ruby. A bodacious beauty. Total diamond weight - .25 carat, total gemstone weight - 7.33 carats (ruby total weight, 4.00 carats). Hand fabricated in 14K rose and yellow gold, circa 1940s. Pin stem is 14K white gold.

About Retro Jewelry

Hollywood glam got creative during the war era, when strategic factors forced jewelers to do without certain materials. Rather than scale back, they took the streamlined shapes of the Art Deco and went big, bold, and gold with them! Retro power pieces segued from the Jazz Age to the Fabulous Fifties, creating many motifs of vintage jewelry along the way.

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.
