Victorian 10kt Rose Cut Diamond Starburst Heart Locket
A romantic locket from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful heart-shaped piece is crafted in 10kt yellow gold and features an etched starburst motif on the front surface. The design is adorned with a single sparkling old Rose Cut diamond that catches the light beautifully with every turn. The back of the heart is embellished with a set of initials, possibly "ES" or "ET," written in a gorgeous flowing script, adding lovely texture to the design. The locket opens on the side to reveal two heart-shaped spaces (one behind a piece of celluloid) to hold special photographs or mementos, if desired. Resting at the top is a simple round bail, perfect for hanging from a favorite chain. This sweet locket would look great worn alone or layered with other pendants, and would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The locket hangs approximately 1 1/2" long (including the bail at the top), and measures slightly more than 1 1/8" wide, and is a little more than 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the locket is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, the diamond is intact and securely set. The bail and locket mechanism is in good working condition.
