Victorian Large 15kt Rock Quartz Crystal Heart Locket
A beautiful heart locket from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This large, double-sided locket has a 15kt yellow gold encasement (indicating English origin), which holds the reversible carved rock quartz crystal design. The smooth, clear rock quartz crystal acts as a window, allowing a photo or object inside to show through to the surface on both sides. The piece is hinged at the side, opening at the gold seam. It hangs from a simple gold ring at the top, and would look lovely paired with a favorite long gold chain!
Measurements: The pendant hangs 1 3/8" long, has a 1" diameter, and is 3/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the locket is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to carved rock quartz crystal or gold setting. The hinge functions properly and is in good working order, and the ring at the top for hanging is secure.
