Antique Victorian Garnet Etruscan Revival Locket in 18k Gold

The Victorians were mad for all things ancient. Etruscan Revival was among several revival styles that came around again during this time. This locket is a lovely example and shows a crossover in styles. While the center section is very light and airy with detailed work and twisted wire work, the outer edge is repousséd with a modified egg and dart detail, reflecting the architectural revival happening concurrently in England.

Set with 3 bright faceted round rosy garnets, like fruit upon the vine, this locket is hand worked in rich yellow 18 karat gold. It is a medium-large size and measures 2 1/8 inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide a the widest point. It is in very nice condition with no noticeable dings or dents. The insides contain two frames ready to hold your photo, it has no glass. This locket is unmarked and has been acid tested to verify content. It weighs 11.8 grams. Made in England around 1870-1880. Stunning!
