Featuring the opportunity to show two pictures simultaneously, this charming Victorian locket is a very sweet treasure. The gold bezel is adorned with alternating bezel-set pearls and turquoise which extend beyond the frame.
Opening and closing the locket is accomplished by twisting the top gold ball until it comes off. Then, one can carefully remove the frame from the two pieces of glass which comprise the locket’s windows. The color you see inside the locket is a piece of paper used to help visually define it and can be easily removed to reveal a double-sided clear locket.
On the bottom, it is marked “9ct.” It is a delightful piece from Victorian England dating around 1890.
The diameter, measured from one pearl across to one turquoise, is approximately 27.5mm. From the top of the clasp to the bottom of the pearl, the measurement is 43.5mm.. Inside the bezel, the approximate measurement is 30mm; it is within this space that the pictures would be placed.
This piece would be a great addition to anyone’s collection, perfect for a parent of twins, and a fun piece with which one could be creative in showing any combination of pictures.
