ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

Go big or go home! Victorians loved color and big, bold, juicy jewels. Gleaming with a lush and lovely clear purple hue, the considerable--and captivating--65.00-carat high-domed cabochon amethyst at the center of this 19th century wonder is punctuated by a bright star, shimmering with 17 single-cut diamonds. Surrounded by a gold frame embellished with double twists and encircled by brightly burnished gold spheres, the entire, and utterly artful, assemblage suspends from an 18-inch cable chain. Yeah, go big. Hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold, circa 1885. The pendant measures 1 3/4 by 2 3/16 inches and matches with ring 10-3-14155.

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.
