One of the most romantic pieces of jewelry one can by is the locket. Able to hold photographs, flowers, mementos and keep them close to the heart, these have long been popular items in a jewelry collection.
This locket is a French Napoleon III-era locket, dating from around 1870. It has been fashioned out of 18k yellow gold and onyx, with a cross on the front studded by seed pearls. Wonderful rope detailing surrounds the front of the locket, which has been expertly crafted and still contains its original mineral glass insert. It snaps shuts securely.
This locket measures 25.4mm wide x 32.6mm high, not including the bail portion and weighs 11.5g. Hallmarked with the French eagle head hallmark for 18k gold on the bail loop. It is in wonderful antique condition. You will receive the pictured locket.
