ABOUT THIS BROOCH

You have to hand it to those wild and whimsical Victorians for creating this marvelous pair of bejeweled, braceleted and cuffed hands, each of which is daintily presenting a fanciful foliate token. The hands, which most likely, originally served as necklace clasps, are aglitter with closely-set rose-cut diamonds; the bracelets, cuffs and leaves are composed of rose-cuts, emeralds and rubies. A rare, wonderful and very amusing pair of antique jewels - circa 1830-40. We estimate about 2.35 carat total diamond weight. 1 11/16 inch by 1/2 inch.

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.
