ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

"I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky.....and all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by..." British merchant seaman turned poet, John Edward Masefield, penned these words in 1902. The serene scene of a ship leaving shore on the back of this unusual and intriguing spinning fob locket brings to mind his words. On its front side, the fascinating locket glows with a vivid orange carnelian presented in an ornate surround of warmly burnished gold, and opens to reveal a photo compartment. Hand fabricated in 15ct. gold, hence of British origin. The captivating creation suspends from a shimmering 18- inch Venetian chain.

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.
