C.1900 Victorian Era Rose Gold Photo LOCKET is round and features an 8 pointed star in the center of the front cover. A petite Rose Cut Diamond is bead-set in the star. RICH Rose Gold locket may have been given as a gift by a suitor ~ husband, father or friend to his Sweetheart ~ wife, daughter or close acquaintance. ANTIQUE locket is slightly curved and only the back cover has been hand engraved with fancy cursive letters - possibly "K E B".

Authentic Victorian locket MEASURES ~ 1 1/8 Inches in Diameter and is Marked inside around the diamond "1/4 GOLD SHELL" and the HEART Hallmark W & H" for Wightman & Hough of Providence, RI. I believe a local jeweler is who set the diamond... as you can see in the photo; part of their hallmark (Co) is no longer visible most likely because of this customization. Wightman & Hough was the largest manufacturer in the world of high grade lockets.

It is hinged slightly up from the bottom and has a notch (to make it easier to open) at the 1 o'clock position. QUALITY locket closes firmly/tightly with a loud SNAP. After more than a Century, vintage gold shell jewelry is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! Has not been professionally buffed/polished - NO DINGS, DENTS, CRACKS, SPLITS or Excessive Wear.

This HEIRLOOM Keepsake would make a GREAT Gift or Addition to your antique locket collection!
