ABOUT THIS BROOCH

She flies through the air with the greatest of ease. This delightful, miniature ( 1 1/2 inch wingspan) swallow pin will look lovely on your lapel. Beautifully hand fabricated in platinum over textured 14K yellow gold by Granberry Co. - circa 1900.

Here's a tidbit courtesy of The Newark Museum: "The firm of JA and SW Granberry was founded in 1895 as Cutler & Granberry in Attleboro, Mass. In 1900 John A Granberry and his brother, SW, bought out the Cutler interest, continuing the operation of the house on Jay Street until April of that year, when they moved the entire plant and business to 26 Beecher Street in Newark. In Feb. 1902 the brothers formed a limited partnership. Five years later, in 1907, the factory relocated to 3-33 East Kinney Street. The firm maintained offices at 13 Maiden Lane in New York City and at 342 South Broadway on Los Angeles, remaining in business until 1931.

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.
