ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

The angels are in the details in this dreamy delicacy from early-20th-century Switzerland (the watch movement) and France (the case and chain). Shimmering grayish-blue guilloche enamel, overlaid with a delicate floret of platinum and tiny rose-cut diamonds, emblazons the front of the timepiece and is further embellished with an inner bezel set with tiny rose-cut diamonds and a scalloped lacy rose-cut diamond-set outer frame. The pendant watch suspends from a pair of rose-cut diamond-set navette shape links which meet at a glittering Edwardian bow leading in turn to a matching chain composed of slender multidimensional enameled navette links. A breathtaking beauty. The necklace measures 15 inches.

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.
