large victorian 18k gold locket with pearls and synthetic rubies


The Story

A stunning large antique locket made in rich 18 karat yellow gold. From the Victorian era, circa the late 1800s, this gorgeous piece features an incredible raised monogram at center which is the focal point of the piece. Done with small seed pearls and antique cut synthetic rubies, it gives the locket an amazing pop of color. The rich yellow gold has a beautiful patina which shows its age in the best way possible.

Unusual in construction, it opens to hold two photos with smaller circular inserts at center. These can be removed altogether to accommodate larger photos.  

The locket comes without a chain. Also available to purchase on the F&B 18-inch 14k yellow gold belcher chain or the F&B 20-inch 14k yellow gold paperclip chain seen here.
