Mid Victorian Diamond and Blue Enamel LocketMid Victorian Diamond and Blue Enamel LocketMid Victorian Diamond and Blue Enamel Locket

This one is lovely, and an example of the Etruscan movement. It's a beautiful locket of 15 carat, unmarked but tested, gold. The back has an opening covered with glass, and underneath this is the old material that looks something like hair, but isn't. Here one could place the photo or lock of hair of a loved one. The front of the locket is spectacular. There is the gold bead work, surrounding a blue enamel star. The star has six smaller rose cut diamonds, and one large one in the center. The center diamond is 3.4 X 3 MM, and the smaller ones are 1.2 MM around. There are ten, fringe like, gold chains hanging from the piece (a friend and customer has told me this is called "beard.") The only damage at all is that one of the chains is missing. I didn't notice it until I examined the piece with a loupe, so I don't feel that this mars the beauty of this circa 1860 piece. On the back, one can see where the chain was attached, and it could probably be repaired; I would just wear it the way it is. The piece measures almost 2 inches North to South from the bail to the end of the longest chain. It is 7/8 of an inch East to West, and it weighs 8.69 grams.
