ABOUT THESE ACCESSORIES

According to Confucius, the wise likened nephrite to a virtue representing--among other things--purity, sureness of intelligence, justice, and loyalty. One thing we know for sure, the finest examples of this gemstone have an extraordinary beauty. Perhaps it's why the renowned jeweler, Cartier, chose nephrite for this utterly exquisite case. The smooth, transparent, marbled deep green box opens and closes courtesy of elegantly designed hinges and a clasp (all rendered in platinum), bejeweled with glittering diamonds and glimmering bright blue French-cut sapphires. Whether used to hold a special treasure or to hold a special place in your curio, this captivating case is a rare and highly desirable collectible. Hand fabricated, it measures 3 9/16 inches long by 2 5/16 inches wide by 1/2-inch high.

About Art Deco Jewelry

Sleek and modern, Art Deco design brought jewelry into the machine age. Yet these stylish pieces still found room for the fine forms and lines of previous eras within their elegant architecture. In particular, we see many peaceful co-habitations of Edwardian and Art Deco styles together.

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.
