ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A couple salient features distinguish this exemplary double-locket pendant from late-Victorian Great Britain (circa 1885)--its considerable dimensions (1 3/4 inches long, plus 1/2 inch including the bale), and its spectacular hand engraving. Expertly crafted in rich 15ct. yellow gold, this marvel of the engraver's art is intricately and opulently ornamented on both sides with fancifully framed floral bouquets with every millimeter lavishly textured in between. The locket opens to reveal double photo compartments--one with a glass cover and one without. A rare beauty. The newer chain measures 18 inches.

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.
