ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Artfully rendered in 20K gold, and framed in platinum and tiny rose-cut diamonds, the blessed sacrament of Holy Communion is being administered to an angelic young lady (Mary Magdelene?) by St. John (not sure which), in this very fine pendant by the noted French medalist Jean Baptiste Émile Dropsy (1858-1923). The reverse displays iconography depicting The Holy Spirit, The Lamb of God, and wheat with grapes - symbols of Holy Communion. Divine. Beautifully engraved with the previous owner's monogram and dated 'September 1934'. 1 1/8 inch not including the matching diamond-set loop.

About Art Nouveau Jewelry

Looking to go organic? Bummed out (with good reason) by the Industrial Revolution, Art Nouveau makers embraced the natural world and a return to the hand-craftsmanship of an earlier time. Their overlap with both the Victorian and Edwardian eras resulted in a great deal of cross-pollination. Though relatively short in its purest form, Art Nouveau’s flowing lines continued to weave their way into fine jewelry.

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.
