ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A breathtakingly beautiful Belle Epoque bauble! Intricately hand-fabricated in platinum, during the first decade of the 20th century, this scintillating stunner incorporates a highly stylized heart motif, three sinuous bows, a freely swinging flower, and a dangling 1.50 carat diamond pear shape drop into its captivating and complex design. The petals of the central flower, the surrounding heart, and the flowing ribbons are set with glittering, multi-shaped rose-cut diamonds. The larger collet-set stones (and the bottom pear shape) are old mine cuts. Measuring 1 3/4 inches in both directions, this is a truly impressive, regal and radiant Edwardian masterpiece. Just shy of 5 carats total diamond weight.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
