ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Start with a simple shape and embellish. Victorian jewelers were masters at transforming ovals, circles and squares into captivating works of art--that held pictures. This oval locket (which opens to reveal to glass-covered photo compartments) is adorned in exquisite detail with a stylized flower, each petal bearing a fleur de lys design, and is centered by gleaming freshwater pearl. Tiny gold spheres and curlicues adorn the top, while a fancy decorated bail connects the pendant to a new 14K gold cable chain, measuring 18 inches. Crafted in 14k gold.

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.
