Antique Georgian Heart Locket with Rose Cut Diamond and Garnet Bow
Regular price$2,100.00 CADSale
This Georgian locket is a sentimental piece - an early example of heart symbolism, without the cleft we are used to seeing today. The locket itself is rock crystal set in gold, with rose cut diamond and square-cut garnet bow on top, a representation of eternal love.
The rock crystal is set in a collet bezel and hinges open/snaps securely. Add a photo of your loved one, dried flowers or other sentimental memento.
This pendant measures 27.5 mm tall (not including the bail, 18mm wide at its widest point and weighs approximately 4.6g. Acid tests as 12-15k gold. The top piece looks to have been added later in antiquity or repaired as there is some lead solder visible. There is a chip to the top garnet and wear commensurate with age.
