This is without a doubt the finest antique Victorian locket that we have had the pleasure to offer. It is a very unique one of a kind piece. Circa 1880, this distinctive locket is indicative of the Victorian Period in every possible way. Both the locket and chain are 18K. The locket has an enameled black oval inlaid with seed pearls and rose cut diamonds. Around the oval there is an intricate enameled leaf design. The glass back of the locket is completely intact and originally held memorial hair, however a photo can easily be displayed. The locket measures 3 1/8 inch to the top of the bale and 1 1/4 inch at the widest point. The chain is original and as distinctive as the locket with a very intricate and unique link, please refer to photos. This is the finest locket we have had in the past 45 years, a true piece of Victorian art.
