ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Late-Victorian/early-Edwardian romance and refinement emanate from this exquisite fin de siècle jewel, highlighting a splendid, multi-chromatic, heart-shaped opal secured in a golden bezel setting framed by glittering rose-cut diamonds set in darkened silver over gold. The enchanting gemstone is crowned by a classic natural pearl-centered bow motif and surmounts an articulated double garland further enlivened by bright lime-green demantoid garnets. Possibly French, English or Russian, although no hallmarks are extant. This rare and breathtaking jewel measures just shy of inches high by 1 and 1/8 inches wide and suspends from what appears to be its original 16-inch silver chain.

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.
