We are very pleased to offer this exquisitely made Victorian locket pendant, crafted in tested 14K yellow gold, circa 1870. Applied to the top of the locket are gold layered elements accented with black tracery enamel and a band of seed pearls. It does not open like a traditional locket, but has a glass covered compartment on the back, for holding a photograph or another memento. It easily opens by lifting the rim of the compartment. The large ornate bale can hold a thick gold chain or a decorative cord for wearing. Excellent condition, far nicer than the photographs depict. Would make a much loved holiday gift! Overall it measures 2" long by 1 1/8" wide, without the bale or loop the locket is 1 3/8". Weight is 10.3 grams.
