Antique Bohemian Garnet Memorial Locket. Here we have a gorgeous antique memorial locket set with natural gemstone Bohemian garnets. The locket is grand in size at 1.75'' x 1.5''. It retains it's original bail which has an ample opening to insert a larger chain. I would imagine that it may have originally suspended from a book chain.
This superb turn of the century estate find is crafted in tiers using a combination of flat top and rose cut garnets. It is designed with a serrated edge and each point is set with a garnet. All stones are prong set and in place. The bail brings the locket pendant to a length of 2.5''. The back of the pendant is adorned with a glass memorial locket to protect what ever you hold dear. The Victorians often wore their lockets on the back of the piece to conceal the contents and keep them close to their heart.
This is a very special garnet locket that has been crafted with thought and quality. It is in very nice condition with age appropriate wear.
