Victorian Diamond and Ruby Locket
With every glance at this intriguing locket, you'll discover a delightful new detail. The design of its shape--reminiscent of Persian ornament--creates a beautiful outline that encircles an exquisite design. A surround of glinting rose-cut diamonds, intersected by stylized "fans", is centered by a diamond-set flower that twinkles in the middle with a tiny cushion-shaped ruby. Every surface is embellished with decorative patterns and black enamel adds an extra flourish. The back of the locket is lovely in its own right, thoroughly beautified with a cross design accented with taille d’épargne enamel. A very special true vintage treasure with an exotic appeal. Circa 1850-1870. Total diamond weight, .75 carat. Crafted in silver over 18K gold (the bale is gilded metal). 18K yellow gold chain measures 18 inches.
