Edwardian 15ct Gold Diamond Star Heart Locket
A beautiful locket from the turn of the last century, c1900. The locket is made from 15ct gold and is heart shaped. It has a slight puffy shape and opens to reveal two heart shaped frames inside that can be removed to place your own photos behind. To the front are a little trio of stars, each one set with a little old mine cut diamond. In fact, the stars are probably ivy leaves as there is a little etched stem when you look closely, though I think it is always open to your own interpretation. The twinkly diamonds certainly help with the star interpretation! As a note, ivy leaves are evergreen and as such are said to represent eternity and fidelity.
The locket will come on an 18" 14kt gold fill chain, as pictured.
