This antique bloodstone and carnelian memorial locket is in very good condition. It dates to the late 19th Century. The elliptical shape of the locket is very attractive and is redolent of 18th Century Georgian memorial pieces.
Inside, the locket currently contains original hairwork (which could be replaced if desired). The compartments are glazed (one of the panes has a small crack).
Overall, this is a really beautiful antique Victorian locket in a sought after design set in 15ct gold. Gorgeous!
The locket is not hallmarked but purity tests indicate it is 15ct gold.
Dimensions: 3.4cm x 1.5cm
ABOUT OUR JEWELLERY
This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000.
Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone.
Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
