victorian diamond and emerald 14k gold locket


The Story

A beautiful antique locket in 14 karat yellow gold, made with a rare bloom finish creating a matte sheen. 

From circa 1880s-1890s, this gorgeous piece features garland motif adorned with luscious antique stones. The garland itself is set with thirteen rose cut diamonds.  At the highest points of the garland are two antique cut emeralds, each approximately 2.15 mm round.  Coming from the center are three Old Mine Cut diamonds, each approximately 0.10 carats, accented by three additional rose cut diamonds.  The diamonds and engraving combined created a lovely design, ornate yet delicate.  

The locket finishes with a 14k bale featuring a bezel set Old Mine Cut diamond weighing approximately 0.33 carats giving it substantial antique bling.  The back of the locket shows a beautiful and ornate hand engraved monogram.

Measuring 1.62 inches tall, it's a substantial size.  It holds up to two nicely sized photos. A gorgeous and rare antique piece to treasure for generations to come.

Available to purchase with or without a new F&B 18 inch 14k yellow gold chain.
