ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A sentiment expressed through jewelry is lovely indeed, and the Victorians did not shy away from doing so. According to The Language of Flowers, written in 1913, grapes symbolized charity, and this charming pendant is a delightful representation. Or, you are simply an oenophile! Set against a gleaming gold circle, a curling grapevine with beautifully textured leaves, two of them centered by a bright round diamond, have produced a special variety of the fruit--a luminous cluster of shimmering freshwater pearls. Artfully hand fabricated, circa 1890, the dainty Victorian and confection suspends from a 15-inch chain cinched by a single pearl.

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.
