Spectacular locket..... This locket is really beautiful. It is Sterling Silver Vermeil. It dates from the 1840's/1860's. The condition for its age is amazing. It features a lovely etched background on the front and the back. The front features four hand cut and polished heart shaped garnets each in a crimped bezel setting. The hearts surround an oval cut garnet of matching color. The garnets are in wonderful condition with very very minor wear, please zoom in. Between each heart is a small round cabochon of persian turquoise which individually set in the same way as the garnets. One turquoise, I suspect to be a replacement as the setting is a bit more crimped than the others. It is hallmarked at the eye loop. The locket opens and closes with a snap, however there is a bit of a gap about 1mm but this does not affect its functionality. No major dents or dings to the case, just normal wear to the back of the locket.
