Even the storefront window of Lang Antiques in Union Square will make you pause in wonder at the glitter of gold and gems. Inside, the cases are overflowing with more than 7,000 pieces of heirloom jewels, from Victorian and Edwardian jewelry to Art Deco, mid-century, and contemporary styles. Lang is also known for one of the best selections of wedding rings, including such unique pieces as a 1920's diamond and emerald Art Deco ring and a marquise-cut diamond ring with platinum filigree. Since opening in 1969, Lang has been best known for its fine antique and estate jewelry, although the store also carries pocket watches, cuff links, men's jewelry, and accessories such as engraved cigarette cases and cameo boxes.
