Our Victorian Etruscan Revival locket is crafted in solid 14K gold. This beautiful heirloom piece is not marked but has been jeweler tested for 14K gold. It is a generous size at 1-5/8'' x 1-1/4''. Victorian jewelry is known for a multitude of design elements and patterns and this loce is layered with bead work and ornate details. The memorial locket is on the reverse. It opens and closes just as it should and has room for a small memento or photo.
This circa 1880 estate find has not been polished and exhibits a deep patina within the beads and swirls. A jump ring is in place at the top which I believe was affixed to a swivel hook or book chain. Our precious little secret keeper is ready to hold what ever you find dear close to your heart.
