ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

This stunning Edwardian/early-Art Deco jewel, expertly hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold - circa 1915-20, comes in a surprising and refreshingly different color combination than 99 percent of its counterparts. The sizable (just shy of 1 1/2 inches) puffed diamond heart is blanketed with a blazing array of icy-white old mine-cut diamonds, together weighing 4.50 carats, each one different from the last and every single one electric. The diamonds are surrounded by a single row of expertly executed calibre-cut synthetic* sapphires, perfectly matched in color. As with most masterfully constructed pieces, the reverse is lovely as well - turn it over and gaze at the carefully a-jour segments that securely hold each precious gem. A hidden bail folds out and swivels as needed to be worn as a necklace as well. *Back in the day (the early-20th-century), due to their color consistency and flawless clarity, synthetic sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts; the subtle differences ony detectable with a microscope.

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.
