ABOUT THIS BROOCH

What a striking contrast. A gleaming gold, pearl-studded sheaf of wheat stands tall against a glossy black onyx plaque, in this alluring Victorian brooch. Wheat was an often-used motif in Victorian jewelry: in addition to presenting a pretty pattern, the hearty grain was associated with women because of the shared ability to provide for society--wheat nourished women, who then used wheat (bread) to feed their families. That's the power of women and wheat. Hand fabricated in 14K gold, the brooch has two bales that allow it to be worn vertically or horizontally as a pendant. Measures 2 11/16 by 1/2 inches. 18 inch, 14 karat yellow gold chain included.

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.
