french victorian pearl and 18k gold locket


The Story

Beautiful and substantial, this Victorian era French made locket is an antique treasure.

Large in scale, this 18 karat rosy-yellow gold piece is striking. Ornately designed, warm gold and creamy pearls make a great combination. Nine pearls accent the raised and applied gold elements throughout. A nicely sized creamy pearl hangs from the bottom giving the locket movement. It finishes with a tapered bale set with five seed pearls giving the piece a cohesive look and feel. 

The reverse of the locket opens to hold the photo or memento of your choice. Measuring 2.8 inches in total length, it's a substantial piece. We love it worn as an heirloom locket on its own or stacked with other favorite necklaces. 

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