ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

The heart--it's filled with all sorts of colorful emotions. As gemstones go, opals beautifully represent that marvelous mix, and this delightful pendant/brooch gleams with seven heart-shaped opals. Glowing with iridescent hues of blue, green, orangey-pink, and violet, they encircle a flower centered by a bright old mine-cut diamond with petals set with lively antique single cuts, while tiny rose-cut diamonds twinkle around the perimeter. The captivating confection suspends from an 18-inch blackened silver chain by way of a fancy bail set with a single opal. Total diamond weight - 1.00 carat, total opal weight - 2.30 carats. Hand fabricated in silver over 14K gold, it has a removable brooch pin and bail. Condition note: one opal has crazing (fine cracks due to water loss).

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.
