ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Late-Victorian/early-Edwardian romance and refinement emanate from this truly exquisite and breathtaking fin de siècle lavalière, highlighting a resplendent multi-chromatic heart-shaped opal, glistening with predominantly fiery pink and turquoise flashes (our photos don't capture the vibrancy and intensity), framed by glittering rose-cut diamonds set in darkened silver over gold. The enchanting gemstone is crowned by a classic natural pearl-centered bow motif and surmounts an articulated double garland enlivened by electric lime-green demantoid garnets from the Ural Mountains of Russia. Total diamond weight, 1.00 carat. Possibly French, English or Russian, although no hallmarks are extant, this rare and ravishing jewel is hand fabricated in silver over 18K and 9K gold, and suspends from what appears to be its original 18-inch silver chain.

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.
