This is a fabulously ornate, and classically Victorian styled, vintage locket necklace. It features a high relief front piece with numerous scrolls and swirls. At the center is an emerald cut faux amethyst, bordered by faux seed pearls at the top and bottom. Exquisite! The reverse is engraved with scrolls and swags. The locket opens easily to reveal two oval picture holders, each with the plastic cover intact. This beauty is suspended from a generous bale and attached ‘O’ ring. The ‘O’ ring is attached to a book chain, which is embossed with a geometric checkered pattern. I think it likely this charmer dates to the 1930s, when Victorian Revival items were popular. It is made of brass and, though unsigned, is clearly a high quality well-made piece. The locket itself is one and three-quarter inches long and 1 5/8 inches wide; the ‘O’ ring, bale, and locket measure 3 1/4 inches long, from the chain. The book chains measure 9 inches on each side, for a total length of 18 inches. The clasp is fold over style; when clasped, the total length is 12 inches, fitting beautifully on the chest. The condition is excellent – the interior is clean and looks like it was rarely used and the seed pearls are without loss of nacre. You’ll be pleased with this – and a locket is always such a special gift! Enjoy! $149.00
