INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Victorian women were a busy bunch; they had many chores and time was of the essence. Thank goodness for the functional--and pretty--guard chain. An essential part of their apparel, these long chains were designed to hold a key time management tool: the pocket watch. No pocket watch? No worries. With 45 inches of lightly crafted textured links and a cool swivel clasp, it's just right for hanging your favorite pendant, and can be worn full length or doubled. Very Victorian, very versatile. In 9ct. gold

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.
