Victorian Large Sterling Pavé Turquoise Heart Locket Pendant
A gorgeous turquoise locket pendant from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! This sterling silver piece forms the shape of a sentimental heart and is completely covered with vibrant turquoise stones along its front surface. The pavé set stones are all similar in size and shape and each exhibits an incredible array of color, from robin's egg blue to earthy green. The face of the pendant is slightly convex and the back reveals a glass-covered locket space, perfect for storing a special photograph or keepsake inside. The piece hangs from a beautiful leaf-shaped bail that adorns a complementary pavé turquoise stone design. A real beauty, this stunning piece has a sweet and feminine look, and would be a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: The locket hangs approximately 1 7/8" long, including the bail at the top. It measures about 1 1/8" wide at the widest and is approximately 1/2" thick. The glass-covered space on the back measures about 3/4" in diameter.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting and all of the pavé turquoise stones are secure and intact, as is the glass locket frame on the back.
