The marvelous turquoise color of the locket background does wonders to the deep set pearls and fine rubies. Is the design meant to be a pair of initials or is it simply the artist's rendition? You decide. The color combination is striking.
The piece tests 9 K gold--typical of the many Victorian creations of the period. The locket weighs 13.1 grams and measures 1 1/4 inch top to bottom ( excluding the bale which is 3/5 inch alone). The reverse features exquisite embossing with a small area that could have initial engraved if desired. It is lovely enough to be worn either front or back.
The rubies are estimated to be from 1 to 2 points each. There are 4 somewhat larger pearls and 19 tiny pearls--all , we believe--are original. We have added a chain for visual purposes. It is gold filled, but will be included in the purchase price.
Inside the locket hols silk fabric and a lock of blond hair. The picture frames are present as well. This lovely piece would be a fine addition to a locket collection or your jewelry wardrobe.
