Story

During the later years of Victorian era a pendant locket was one of the most popular item of jewelry. Ultimately sentimental, the locket was typically placed close to the heart and worn on a daily basis with its contents not available for public view.

This rise is prevalence came about to accommodate the availability of photographs. Weighty and a cut above the norm, the 18k yellow gold oval locket has a splendid puffy and takes its cues from the archeological revival styles of the day.

The front showcases classic motifs and elements from the period for this superb and fine pendant. An eight pointed star is set with twelve natural half saltwater seed pearls. At the center a cushion cut faceted ruby of .15 carats gleams and brings color to the whole.

Meticulous use of twisted wire and beading decorates the surfaces in matte luminous gold. The reverse is hand engraved elegant script, IC MA (for two individual's initials) and the date of Feb 25, 1875.

This antique locket has an interior compartment for two photographs or keepsakes complete with inner rims and glass covers.
