Story

During the Victorian years the locket was one of the most often worn pieces of jewelry. With the rise of the science of photography, the locket reigned as the place to show off portraits of loved ones.

The one featured here in 14k yellow gold uses form to convey both function and design. Its front is adorned with a three-dimensional appliqué centered with a .15 carat old mine cut diamond (H-I color; I1-2 clarity) in a flower form edged with sixteen (16) shaped turquoise cabochons channel set.

Golden orbs project from the border with half natural saltwater pearl-set trefoil elements. Lifting up the hinged cover a glass covered compartment with inner rims is revealed.

The sides display twisted wire work culminating in “S” forms at the bottom. The outside border is also embellished with golden orbs. Please note the original removable bale.
