ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

An enchanting, unique and intriguing late-Victorian jewel, dating from the-turn-of-the-last-century, glowing front and center with an absolutely stunning and unusual circular-cut Australian opal aglow with a gorgeous pastel pallet of evenly distributed rainbow hues. The resplendent gemstone is framed all around by 14 pearl-set sun rays. There is a very fine, virtually invisible fissure running trough the gemstone that has probable been there forever, and we have discounted the piece accordingly. 1 1/8 inch diameter, wearable as both a pendant or pin. A truly lovely and lustrous adornment.

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.
