victorian lion's head 14k gold, diamond, and ruby locket necklace


The Story

A striking antique piece from the Victorian era. Created in 14 karat yellow gold, a raised mythical lion's head is the main feature of this round locket. Formed with lots of expression, two small rubies are set as the eyes with a 0.10 carat Old Mine Cut diamond set within the lion's mouth. The locket shows its age in the best possible way with the rich patina making the raised work pop and gold glow.

At 1.66" tall with its bale, it's a substantial size. It holds two round photos and is a gorgeous piece to hold your loved ones near.

The locket hangs on a new 18-inch 14K yellow gold F&B chain.
