ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Striking! (to say the least), the tail of this this spectacular serpent, hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold, glossy black enamel, rose-cut diamonds, and turquoise, is entirely articulated up to his/her head. Speaking of its head, the crowning pear shape turquoise is framed all around with sizable, glittering rose-cut diamonds of various shapes and sizes (approximately 1.50 carats total). Cabochon ruby eyes (probably synthetic but original to the piece) and spiky golden fangs add the finishing touches to this fantastic creature - circa 1885. About 2 5/8 inches across (but the tail moves).

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.
