ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

We've always maintained that the backsides of fine Belle Epoque jewels are prettier than the front sides of their modern counterparts, and this astonishingly beautiful necklace is a case in point! Virtuosically handcrafted in gossamer-like platinum during the first or second decade of twentieth century, this truly exquisite and breathtaking lavaliere glitters with 326 fine white, high-quality European-cut diamonds accentuated with fine milgraining. The leafy bottom section and the fan-shaped top section seamlessly articulate back and forth, adding subtle movement to the delicate lacework. A classic diamond bow knot bail and loop crown this sublime, museum-quality masterpiece. Circa 1910. The lavaliere suspends from an original, 18" platinum and diamond chain. 3 and 1/8 inches high by just over 2 inches wide.

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.
