Here we have a wonderful and extremely unique antique 15K gold (hallmarked to the back) round mourning locket Circa 1900-1910. The outline or surround is made up of white enamel with a gold enamel quatrefoil pattern. The central grey circular panel (matte finished...onyx?) has a 4mm old cut diamond to the center which is collet set in silver (800+/1000 purity). It has a vacant glazed panel to the back making this one of the most interesting and unique pieces of mourning jewelry I have seen. I originally received this piece as a brooch but after feedback and much thought I felt it would be warned and cherished more as a pendant. It measures about 2.4 cm from East to West and 3 cm North to South including the 14K gold bale it weighs 7.2 grams. The back of the piece is gold and is where the small piece of glass sits in the middle. This can be removed and a photo or lock of hair of a loved one could be slipped it but I have not attempted to do this as I will leave that up to its new owner. The gold back also bears hallmarks, a makers mark and registration number with a design almost like a clover but made out of triangles. It is stamped "15c" "T & JF" with a R# of 126848. Truly a one of a kind piece i am quite certain I will never see another. Please do look at the photos as I do use them as an integral part of my item descriptions and as always describe every item to the best of my ability. This listing is for the Mourning pendant only and does not include a chain. Questions are always welcome
