A very nice quality reproduction antique locket inspired by the Victorian era. The locket is made in 9ct yellow gold and features a cross platform encrusted with bright rubies and pearls. The eleven natural rubies are raised and bead set along cross, and surrounded and stepped down in height are white cultured seed pearls. Adding further charm and compliment to locket is the oval pearl-encrusted bail. A hinged gold border and see-through glass panel constructs the back, where you may like to house your special keepsakes or sentimental photos. The locket has an oxidised finish- a darker or blackened appearance surrounding gemstones and edges of cross, adding further depth and 'Victorian' character!
An eye-catching locket, something a bit different which oozes a feminine touch!
