ABOUT THESE EARRINGS

Half French, simply stunning, and thoroughly exquisite 1 and 1/8 inch-long antique diamond ear drops. Each earring culminates in a 1.32 carat old European-cut diamond (2.65 carats total) sparkling from within fancy 14 karat gold double-tiered buttercup settings. These are surmounted by a slender glittering row of tiny single-cut diamonds set in silver, which in turn, dangle from a single small antique old mine-cut diamond. (We designate them as being half French because the bottom buttercup settings test 14 karat yellow gold, as opposed to the traditional 18k karat gold exclusively used by French jewelers of the period. However, the style and appearance is 100 percent a la Français. C'est magnifique!

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.
