ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Who says that everything has to be perfectly balanced--certainly not the creative, free-spirited Victorians. This striking and unusual openwork pendant, fashioned in a foliate motif aglitter with European and rose-cut diamonds, has a decidedly different orientation. Centered with a glimmering deep rose-pink rhodolite garnet framed by bright European-cut diamonds, it is designed with an asymmetrical twist--reminiscent in shape of a painter's palette--and is embellished by a pair of dangling diamond-dotted drops. Delightfully askew. Total diamond weight - 1.60 carats, total garnet weight - 2.65 carats. Hand fabricated in silver over 9ct. gold (hence, of British origin). Chain measures 19 inches.

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.
