An amazing immaculate Victorian Locket. This locket is crafted from 14K Yellow gold with Persian Turquoise and Pearls. It dates from the mid to late 1800's. The condition is immaculate with no outer damage, just very minimal wear. This is a lather large locket with a length including the bail at two and one quarter inches. The back glass frame pops out to insert your treasured item. I have removed the fabric backing as it was not original and a bit tattered. It love how these lockets were put together. You can see from the back that the front was applied and secured with pins and a screw in the center. The appliqué has no movement and is very secure. The appliqué is a fabulous very striking design. It features channel set hand cut Persian turquoise of wonderful consistency in color and quality. Inside the turquoise is a snowflake like form which is set with lovely illumine pearls each drilled from the back with tiny bead prong on the front. The bail is large and will accommodate a myriad of different sized chains. I have photographed in with a 14K book chain that is also available in my store, if interested. No hallmarks were located but tested electronically and with acid for 14K.
