ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Watch out--this ravishing and remarkable reptile will charm you! From the tip of his finely decorated tail (no rattles here) to the garnet-centered, artfully engraved puffed heart locket that he holds in his mouth, he captivates with his brightly burnished, star-pierced scales and exquisitely engraved, garnet-crowned head. In true serpentine style, he'll curve around your neck, keeping watch with gleaming garnet eyes and, when not out and about, coils up in a case perfectly fitted for his sinuous shape. Victorian, of course. Total garnet weight, 5.60 carats. Hand fabricated in 9ct. yellow gold, it measures 16 1/4 inches (17 3/4 to the tip of the heart).

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.
