This gorgeous and precious antique 15K locket comes straight from my personal collection. European in origin, the front of the locket is adorned with two pear shaped lustrous faceted emeralds, 3 rose cut diamonds and nice seed pearls. I will let the images speak for themselves.

Opening from the side, the locket reveals two compartments for photos. It retains all its original components: two original bezel frames, glass covers, two old photos of a lovely couple underneath, and the original bale and jump ring at the top.

Gemstone specifics (all measurements are approximate):
Emeralds: 6.20mm x 4.02mm, 5.4mm x 3.6mm, combined carat weight is a little over 1 ctw by estimation.
Rose cut diamonds: 2.5mm-2.8mm by spread, or 0.10 ctw by estimation.
Seed pearls: 2.5mm -2.8mm.

* The listing is for the locket only. If you want a chain to go with the locket, I would be happy to provide you an 18-inch gold filled chain at no cost. The chain style varies depending on what is available in my inventory. Please send me a message before or at your check out.

Measurements: 1 & 7/8" from top to bottom (1.5" long without the bale and jump ring) and 1 & 3/16" in width.

Metal: unmarked like most Victorian jewelry. It tested 15K with an electronic tester and confirm with acid.

Locket weight: approx. 21.6 grams.

Circa 1880s.

Condition: very fine antique condition with minor wear. Two tiny chips near the edge of the smaller emerald. A tiny file mark inside the locket caused by gold testing in the past. It opens well and closes securely with a click. Please refer to the pictures for the overall condition.
