ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 10K Gold, Hardstone Cameo Watch Fob/Locket Pendant

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....

AGE: C.1890 or so

ITEM: A rose gold fob charm or locket or pendant set with a hardstone cameo on one side and a banded black agate on the other (ready for engraving). Originally found without the pendant piece you now view, I had my jeweler fashion one so that this lovely piece could go back to its original purpose - something to be worn. The original pendant piece would have allowed the piece to spin freely but my jeweler chose to tighten the sides so that the center can be moved only in one direction. Result? A locket that stays in place unless manipulated by hand.

The hardstone cameo is perfectly cut - there are no chips or cracks to the profile of the Tudor Lady nor on the back black agate. Note - there is what appears to be roughness at the bottom lower left. However, because the lady's veil is slightly chiselled to denote the lace edging, I believe the lower left is also chiselled this way to show the ruffling of the dress. This can be sanded smooth if desired.

The locket opens/closes from the bottom. There is no audible "click" when closed - what there is, is a very tight fit! The interior of the locket is quite deep at 3/16" - deep enough to hold pictures or a lock of hair.

CONDITION: Quite shiny and ready for a length of watch chain or necklace chain. Nice detailing.

SIZE: Centerpiece measures 7/8" wide x 1-1/8". The entire pendant measures 1-3/4" long x 1-16" wide.

METAL CONTENT: 10K Gold

HALLMARKS: No gold mark. Gold was acid tested for content and my jeweler used the same in fashioning the pendant mechanism. There are engraved marks on the inside of locket denoting the hand made manufacture (XVII).

WEIGHT: 9 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: Photo'ing hardstone cameos, well, any cameo is difficult, so please forgive the pictures. This is a nice bit of Victorian jewelry - sure to please someone.
