This turn of the century locket embodies the romantic spirit of Art Nouveau jewelry. During this period the feminine form was highly celebrated as well as inspirations from nature. The profile of this lovely woman shows her wavy hair softly swept back and held in place by a floral headband with a lucky star accented by delicate rose cut diamonds. Her features are soft and serene as she looks upwards. This is beautifully symbolic of the promise of a new day and good fortune. She is a fine example of the Art Nouveau movement. Her image is centered on a softly detailed four leaf clover. The locket features one circular photo compartment (interior diameter for photo - 23 mm).
