ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Josiah Wedgwood began his independent pottery company in 1759. His elegant and iconic "Wedgwood blue" fine stoneware endures today and, fortunately for you, it makes for exquisite jewelry. In this extraordinary Edwardian necklace, an oval Wedgwood plaque, with a scene carved in relief, is adorned by a graceful, diamond-set bow and accented by four luminous seed pearls. The captivating confection swings from a small, flower-centered Wedgwood disk by way of a shimmering diamond-set element punctuated with a single pearl, and framed east and west by knife-edge wires. Your neckline is the perfect place on which to hang this masterfully hand fabricated work of art. In platinum over 14K gold, it measures 11/16 by 2 inches. 16-inch platinum chain.

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.
