ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Magnifique! barely begins to describe this exemplary and thoroughly exquisite Edwardian era necklace, delicately hand-crafted in platinum during the first or second decade of the twentieth century. Five chevron shape sections are ornamented with alternating rows of glittering white diamonds and finely-milgrained, gossamer-like open work designs, each crowned with a fanciful floral and foliate motif. Slender diamond drops sparkle between each section and a rose-cut diamond dotted knife-wire necklace completes the picture. A truly rare, ravishing and romantic Belle Èpoque jewel.

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.
