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 Vintage Jewelry

Like fine wine, fine jewelry also has a “vintage”—the design period or era from which it hails. Victorian or Edwardian, Art Deco or Retro, each piece in our collection has its own special pedigree. But just because one era ended and another began, it doesn’t mean that creative jewelry makers simply forgot the lessons of the past! Many of the jewels in our cases refuse to conform to a single design period, either by striking out on their own or showing the transition from one era to the next. When such daring dazzlers are over one hundred years old, they’re generally grouped in the antique category. Anything younger than that, but still made before 1970, fits the vintage label. Every iconic era yields both singular and transitional pieces, like the ones we’ve assembled here. Follow the link at the end of each section for more about the aesthetics and history of the period.

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.
