Exquisitely hand-engraved front, set with four Bohemian garnets and a natural seed pearl, this locket has an open back for a photo or a lock of hair, covered by the original glass.
The Bohemian garnets are prong set. Two are round, two are oval. The beautiful raspberry color gems are contrasted by a natural seed pearl at the center.
This beautiful and rare antique locket measures 1″ tall including the bail, by 7/16″ at the widest point and 5/16″ deep at the center of the pearl.
In excellent condition for its age with slight signs of wear. It weighs approximately 2.8 gram. Estimated to date from the 1880’s, it is unmarked and was carefully tested.
