Edwardian Large Diamond Heart Locket
Engraved in flowing script, the initials “MSH” grace the front of this heart of my heart 14k gold locket. The reverse displays an old European cut diamond of approximately .07 carats placed in a star setting. Having a secure and tight closure, two tiny fingernail slits are used to open the hinged locket which then reveals a pair of heart shaped compartments with plastic covers. Measures more than 1-5/8 inches (4.2 cm) in total length including ¼ of an inch (0.7 cm) bale by 1-3/8 inches (3.5 cm) at the widest. Weighs a hefty 11.7 grams. In very good condition to excellent condition. Dates to circa 1900.
Note: All diamond weights are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
