ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Here is one of the finest and most fabulous antique heart lockets or vintage jewel of any kind for that matter. Elaborately and artfully designed and masterfully hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold, this breathtaking jewel centers a 1.75 carat antique pear shape diamond highlighted all around and above with over three carats of old mine-cut and rose-cut diamonds, all of which swing and sway and sparkle from a .75 carat antique oval diamond (bringing the total diamond weight to 5.60 carats). The scintillating stones are accentuated with fine Taille d’épargne black enamel tracery and the reverse houses a flip-open locket with a beveled crystal. A thoroughly stunning, high-caliber Victorian era masterpiece.1 and 3/4+ inches. 14K, 18 inch Victorian chain.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

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.
