Antique Victorian Crescent Moon & Star Locket Necklace
Gold Filled with Paste Stones
A lovely and relatively large antique Victorian locket in gold filled is the pendant on this necklace. Measuring 1 1/4″ in diameter, the cover is adorned with a crescent moon and star, each set with antique rhinestones called paste stones because they were made of glass paste. They look their best in low light, candlelight for example.
The material is gold filled. The locket is in very good condition and looks like photos were never added. It does have light surface scratches consistent with age.
We added a brand new gold-filled chain that can be worn between 16″ and 18″ long, depending on where it is clasped on the extender. Estimated to date from the 1890s.
