ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Although unmarked, this fabulous locket necklace has all the earmarks and characteristics to suggest early-to-mid 19th century French or English origin. The lithe serpentine 15-inch chain, capped with cobalt blue enamel and diamond terminals, culminates in a gorgeous heart-shaped combination pendant/clasp/locket. The striking cobalt blue enamel heart sparkles in the center with an antique cushion-cut diamond centering a radiant diamond-set starburst. The circle clasp is overlaid with glittering diamond-set leaves, and the heart is side hinged to reveal a glass covered display compartment on the ornately engraved reverse. A truly gorgeous, remarkable and romantic antique jewel.

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.
