ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Whether presenting a mythical scene or a portrait in profile, cameos always pique curiosity, and this is one of the finest and most artful carvings you're likely to find--the back of the subject's garment gradually becomes translucent!. Beautifully coiffed and bejeweled, the lovely lady that graces the face of this one could be royalty, a sophisticated socialite, or simply the exquisite outworking of the jeweler's imagination. Surrounded by a ring of lustrous natural pearls alternating with eight lively rose-cut diamonds, the exquisite work of wearable art suspends from a fine (new) 18-inch cable chain, ready to add a little intrigue to your neckline. Total diamond weight, .80 carat. Hand fabricated in platinum over 18K gold, circa 1880, it measures 1 1/2 by just under 1 1/4 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.
