Large Victorian Pearl Starburst Locket
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Clocking in at 2 5/8 inches, this quite conspicuous pendant locket, crafted in velvety, warmly burnished 14K yellow gold, circa 1885, is emblazoned on the front with a radiant 8-ray star-studded with lustrous seed pearls and a halo of tiny round rubies.* On the reverse is a fanciful hand-engraved monogram - ABL (choose the order). This striking Victorian keepsake hinges open to reveal a photo compartment. The new 18K chain measures 20 inches. *Two of the stones might be natural rubies, the others are difficult to definitively identify as rubies. Note: very minor dent on the reverse upper edge.
