ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A Victorian celestial extravaganza! 162 lustrous natural seed pearls are set in this stunningly decorated necklace. Hand-fabricated in rich 18 karat yellow gold and measuring just under 16 inches long, a slim crescent moon guards a pearl-studded star. A hidden hook at the base of the moon allows another pearl-studded swinging star and moon pendant to be added or detached from the necklace. A tantalizing treat for the moon-gazer in all of us. The larger star and moon duo are just under one inch wide, with a 14 karat rose gold base. Most likely of British origin - circa 1885.

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.
