ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A rare and ravishing nineteenth-century necklace, lightly and lovingly handcrafted in 18 karat yellow gold and highlighting five coral buttons and a large coral oval cabochon. The pastel pink 'angel skin' corals are delicately framed in finely corrugated textured bezels and the centerpiece, which is removable so as to be worn as a brooch, is ornamented all 'round with classic Etruscan Revival granulation work. Lithe doubled and tripled herringbone-pattern chains with granulated terminals comprise the necklace portion of this exquisite antique jewel. The necklace, sans pendant, measures 18 inches; the pendant measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/8 inches.

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.
