This antique French 18 karat gold and faceted crystal locket is circa 1890. The gold bezel has a rich, original patina and is finely detailed. The "x" which is in a crossed ribbon motif has a subtle contrasting color of gold. The locket unscrews at the top and the gold bezel opens and releases the faceted crystals to insert photos or a lock of hair. I personally love it worn as pictured.
The condition is excellent. There is a tiny ding on the top round "knob" not at all noticeable when worn.
It measures 1 inch round and 1 1/2 inch long from the top loop.
This locket is beautiful worn with a gold chain or black cord. The chain is available for purchase separately.
Join it with other lockets and chains for a totally interesting effect.
There is a tiny French guarantee stamp for 18 karat gold. on the small top ring.
Simply elegant and timeless in appeal.
France, circa 1890
