Simply the best of this form of locket I have offered. It is French, 18 karat gold and beveled glass. The gold is finely reeded and decorated with an "X" ribbon around each section. The "X" was cleverly designed with a subtle, contrasting color of gold to create an accent. I have sold several of these lockets, but none with this octagon shape and fine details to the gold. Even the bail is shaped and reeded to match perfectly with the gold work on the locket. The beveled glass reflects light with every movement.
The locket unscrews at the top and a photo or momento like a dried petal can be inserted if desired. I personally love it worn as seen.
It measures 1 inch across and 1 1/2 inches long with the bail.
The price does not include the chain, but it is available for purchase and a perfect match in color.
Superb condition . So easy to wear everyday and timeless in appeal.
France, circa 1890
