Locket Pendant with Neo Etruscan influence as can be seen in the rope-twist and raised stripe borders. Subtly matte finish to the gold surface - gleaming quietly echoes the deep red rose cut garnets, with their rich glow. Centered by a light blue sapphire and the gemwork surrounded by tiny seed pearls to set off the gems to greater effect. Locket opens to contain place for a pair of portraits. The quality of the workmanship and design is outstanding. The gemstones are wonderfully sculptural. The chain that suspends the pendant appears to be original to the piece. It is a rich, very solid ridged and flexible gold.

Marks: none found. Gold acid tested 18k.

Condition: good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures.
