Story

Substantial and wonderful, this is an unusual Edwardian era Acrostic locket.

Most acrostic jewelry dated to the early 1800s, although reproductions abound.

An acrostic jewel uses every first letter of the name of the gemstones to spell out a word, in this case, "DEAREST". There is a diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire, and a topaz. Ok, the designers substituted a citrine, but it resembles a topaz and only a gemologist would know.

A hidden message in a rainbow of hues and colors arcs across the top left with incised rays emanating from the corner. Dated from 1919, this could hold a thicker memento(s) and although Edwardian in date, has a modernist, sleek feel.

Note the overall shape puffy in the center which tapers on each edge for a stylish profile.

A large lip pops open from the bottom to reveal an empty compartment awaiting your secret treasures, medicine, locks of your pet's fur, you name it.

Yellow gold of 9k is weighty at 31.8 grams! Would look smashing on a thick chain.
