ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

This unique and ravishing lavalier necklace dates back almost to the turn-of-the-twentieth century - most probably circa 1910. An exotically designed openwork center section, crafted in 14 karat white gold over 18 karat yellow gold, sparkles with ten old-mine cushion-cut diamonds set in finely milgrained bezels. The diamond section is surmounted by a raspberry-pink sapphire and dangles with three more of the same, all of which are bezel set in 18 karat gold and total 3.50 carats. One of the sapphire dangles has a small surface chip that we decided to leave alone (and all-original). The pendant measures 2 inches long.

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.
