ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

You can make a cameo appearance whenever you please with this delightfully designed, head-turning pendant. The lovely lady in profile, donning a laurel leaf headdress --carved from hardstone Carnelian--is framed by a tiny necklace of seed pearls and fine openwork gold knife-edge wire, while a natural pearl drop dangles below. Hand fabricated in 14K gold (10K clasp). Circa 1890. Chain measures 18 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.
