ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

We're betting that you don't yet own a drop-dead gorgeous necklace that is brimming with brilliantly sparkling diamonds, is designed by Tiffany & Co*., and comes with its own little tool kit. This lovely, light-filled, classic Edwardian lavalier will change all of that. Overlapping loops and swirls, set with glittering round brilliant-cut diamonds, create an exquisite openwork design--centered by a scintillating .93-carat European-cut diamond and embellished with a trio of dangling pear-shaped diamonds--that suspends from a fine Figaro cable chain. The 15 3/4-inch chain can be adjusted in length by means of a 1 3/4-inch removable section and, here's the cool part, the necklace is accompanied by fittings and a small screwdriver that will help you convert the pendant to a brooch! This extraordinary jewel, when not around your neck or on your lapel, rests in its own box embossed on the outside with, "Marjorie, April 21st 1915." An utterly stunning and captivating collectable. Total diamond weight, 5.21 carats. *Although not signed (there is a faint T & Co. on the clasp), we confidently attribute this piece to Tiffany. Hand fabricated in platinum (bail is platinum over 18K gold).

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
