Antique Simple Etruscan Revival 14k Gold Locket, Circa 1900
What a perfect little locket! No fuss or frills just simple and beautiful. It dates to around 1900 and is solid 14k gold with a soft matte finish. There is a subtle Etruscan Revival design flourish seen in the granular beaded edge that surrounds both the front and back panels. The size of the oval is exactly 1" by 3/4" and the inside can accommodate two photos that'll measure approximately 3/4" by 1/2". The gold has a strong yellow hue and the smooth surfaces manage to capture then reflect light in a mystical way, giving the illusion that the locket slightly glows. A very beautiful effect! Because of it's simplicity this locket is an excellent candidate for engraving. If that interests you just let me know. I'd be happy to make a recommendation or facilitate having it done for you.
Please note that the listing is for the locket alone but I am happy to help pair it with an appropriate chain. The chain in the photo is 18", 14k and $88. It is available for purchase upon request.
