18 KT Gold and Turquoise Book Locket

1,875.00

Exceptional detail abounds with this locket. 18KT Gold and finely engraved in the Victorian manner along with finely applied wirework and ball details. I don't believe this locket is old but the details are as finely executed as they would have been in the Victorian age. The center of the locket has a natural oval cabochon turquoise with shading of green and natural veining. There are 8 small cabochon turquoise around the edges of the locket along with applied ball and wirework. The back of the locket is polished gold. (There are fine scratches which are surface and I'm certain can be polished out.)
Nothing was missed in terms of detail as I'm certain this piece was handcrafted. There are marks inside the locket which I am not familiar with but may be Persian. It has been tested and is 18KT Gold. The locket closes securely and has a depth inside of 5mm which makes it a perfect keepsake or memento holder. It is substantial in weight at 16.9 grams. 27mm top to bottom and 20mm wide.
Chain may be purchased separately.
