The necklace is detailed with a single old Rose Cut diamond which is set within the surface of the locket. A raised border surrounds the sides of the locket and an interesting geometric image adorns the background. The locket opens to reveal a photograph of a young girl on one side and a lock of hair on the other side. This unusual and stunning locket would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
