ABOUT THESE EARRINGS

These classic ear baubles present a pair of bright, glossy turquoise cabochons that gleam within halos of sparkling white old mine-cut diamonds, all together weighing 1.00 carat. Originally hand fabricated in two-tone gold--18K white for the diamond settings and 14K yellow for the rest of the earrings--the metal around the diamonds was later plated with 18K yellow gold. Not to worry, if the plating begins to show signs of wear, the diamonds will only appear a bit larger and whiter. Circa turn of the 20th century.

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.
