This quite incredible locket was created during the Romanov era of Tsar Nicholas II circa 1910 and is stamped with the ’56’ Russian mark for 14ct gold, implemented in 1882, for the gold fineness mark in zolotnik =585/1000 purity.

Typical of Russian gold the hue is a rich rose gold, once termed, and sometimes still, as ‘red’ or ‘pink’ gold.

Set with a pear-cut Ruby ‘suspended’ in pendant fashion from a ‘necklace’ of tiny rough rose cut diamonds to the front panel and opening to reveal two compartments which retain their original gold rims and two, perhaps later, clear panes.

The verso is highly polished and plain bearing the Russian stamps.

One only has to search online for similar pieces to understand the value of this coveted and desirable antique lockets.. a true asset to any serious jewellery connoisseurs collection.
