ABOUT THESE EARRINGS

Formerly part of a fancy 1920s Art Deco white-tie tuxedo set--created and signed by J.E. Caldwell*-- shimmering iridescent mother-of-pearl discs, each centered by an 'X' glittering with rose-cut diamonds, are encircled by halos of rose-cut diamonds, in what are now utterly lovely and unique ear drops. Total diamond weight, .30 carat. Hand fabricated in platinum over 14K gold. 

*From their website: James Emmott Caldwell left his hometown of Poughkeepsie, New York in 1836 to study as a jeweler and watchmaker in New York City. In 1839, he opened his first jewelry shop and began creating his own jewelry in Philadelphia under a partnership. In 1841, J.E. Caldwell & Co. was officially formed. J.E. Caldwell jewelry quickly grasped an identity of finely handcrafted pieces influenced by the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. These pieces remain some of the most intricate and refined of their kind, mounted with the true artistry that distinguishes every piece of jewelry bearing the J.E. Caldwell imprint.

About Art Deco Jewelry

Sleek and modern, Art Deco design brought jewelry into the machine age. Yet these stylish pieces still found room for the fine forms and lines of previous eras within their elegant architecture. In particular, we see many peaceful co-habitations of Edwardian and Art Deco styles together.

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.
