Story

Flat bottomed gemstones, cabochons have tops and sides that are polished smooth without any faceting. Often domed or similarly shaped, many types of gems are enhanced by this ancient millennia old method of deep, smooth polishing.

Here six (6) lush, wine-hued garnets are set in a tight side by side pattern. With great depth to bring out their color, they are further accented by a low bezel with tiny claws and wire type border. At the center rests a star of gold accented with a half natural pearl (untested but assumed natural due to age and examination). On the reverse is a glass covered locket which most likely held a lock of hair (now deficient) and currently with a small piece of dark fabric. The circa 1870 pendant locket is all in 15k yellow gold.
