Simply superb in every way, this 15 karat gold locket is English, circa 1880. It was designed with refined simplicity of gold work. Each banded agate is perfectly matched in striped and set in rub over collets. It is a bold and beautiful statement of a pendant with an almost modern aesthetic.
It measures 2 1/4 inches long with the bail X 1 3/4 inches across. The patina is original and glorious.
Even the bezel has a restrained design with a simple gold dot at the top and another matching banded agate. It is like a fine sculpture, beautiful from every angle.
Worn with a pleated black ribbon, which I will provide, a gold chain or black cord, it is a forever piece of jewelry. Relevant to today's fashion as it was over 120 years ago.
