Victorian Petite 15kt Garnet Heart Locket Pendant
A gorgeous double-sided locket from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This lovely piece is crafted in 15kt yellow gold and forms the shape of a petite puffy heart adorned with a beautiful garnet cabochon at the center of one side. The bezel set stone exhibits a luscious, rich red hue and radiates in the light with every turn. Resting on the other side is a heart-shaped beveled glass-covered locket face, perfect for storing a special photograph or small keepsake inside. The entire locket is decorated with a gorgeous, swirled etched leaf motif, lending a fabulous textured appeal to the design. The pendant hangs from a simple round bail at the top, perfect for hanging from a favorite chain or charm bracelet. Whether worn alone, or paired with other pieces, this versatile locket has a romantic and feminine look, and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 3/4" long (including the bail at the top), and measures a little more than 1/2" wide, and is about 3/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The garnet is intact and securely set. The glass locket frame is secure and in good working condition.
