ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Evocative of miniature and marvelous rock formations, the agate beads that comprise this striking Victorian necklace are naturally 'painted' by Mother Nature herself with bands ranging in color from translucent white to chocolate brown. Adding a burnished glow to the mix are bright 15K gold beads decorated in Etruscan Revival style with granulation and appliques of twisted wire. This utterly out-of-the-ordinary jewel is accompanied complementing dangling earrings. Hand fabricated, circa 1875, from Great Britain. The necklace measures 20 inches and the earrings are 2 1/8 inches long.

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.
