ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Greetings! My name is Myrtle! I'm 60 to 70 years old (circa 1960s). Check out my cool bright orange coral shell hand-carved with a striking wavy fluted pattern. My textured skin is 18K yellow gold, my green eyes are emeralds, and I'm up for adoption! Please take me home; I'll look wonderful on your lapel. I measure 1 7/8 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide.

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.
