This is such a fabulous pendant Locket. It was crafted by London & Ryder. (Edmond London & George William Ryder, successors to C F Hancock, 17 New Bond St, top London Goldsmiths, Silversmiths and Jewellers). The company was a prize winner in the 1862 International Exhibition. The pendant is crafted from 15K Yellow gold and fine blue enamel. The top features a large bail with blue enamel work which is attached to the bow which is covered in fine blue enamel. The enamel is in pristine condition with no chips or damage noted. The heart is a hand carved and polished rock quartz crystal set in a 15K gold frame. The back of the locket is removable in order to place your favorite momento in the open space compartment of the rock crystal. The back frame features a gold backing which inserts into the face of this locket. The frame possesses a glass backing for securing you momento. The crystal has been reinforced by my jeweler to ensure the heart does not dislodge. The pendant locket is fitted in its original box from London& Ryder. The box and the pendant/locket are in excellent condition both inside and out.
