ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

All the way from a vanished empire (the Austro-Hungarian empire, that is) comes this artfully designed leafy heart-shaped lavalière, expertly hand fabricated in silver over 14K gold, circa the turn-of-the-20th-century. Imbued with a decidedly Viennese flavor, the beautifully asymmetrical jewel centers on a crystalline 'pigeon-blood red' faceted oval ruby along with a lustrous white natural pearl, both of which are enwrapped in glittering rose-cut diamonds. Old-world elegance par excellence. Total diamond weight - .50 carat, total ruby weight - .86 carat. Chain measures 18 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.
