ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Every part of this Mid-Century Mughal-style necklace is a wondrous delight. The pendant presents a bezel-set 11.50-carat luscious mint-green beryl or emerald (the foil backing prevents determining if it has the depth of color to be classified as an emerald), carved with a lotus flower and framed by a scalloped surround of rich 22 carat gold set with sparkling bright white sapphires. The reverse is a stunning miniature masterpiece of enamel work, featuring an exotic bird in a field of flowers encircled by hearts. The captivating and colorful creation is finished with a flourish of dancing free-form button seed pearls, and suspends from a 16 1/4-inch fancy link chain. A centuries-old aesthetic now yours for the wearing. Total white sapphire weight, 2.25 carats.

About Mid-Century Jewelry

Mid-Century jewelers gave the Victorians a run for their money when it came to variety—with the added bonus of big, bold gems in every shape, size, and color. Themes of previous eras were made fabulous enough to match the optimism of the post-war world. Transitional pieces bridged the gap between the first and second half of the 20th century.

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.
