Late Victorian / Early Edwardian Seed Pearl 9ct Photo Locket

Collections: Sold Archive

Exquisite antique photo locket modelled in bright yellow 9ct gold and set to the perimeter with 32 all original white natural half pearls, in cut down claw settings, all of which are original, nice and white, no replacements or re - ‘glued’ in.
With a glorious hinged bale also set with another 4 graduated natural pearls, this locket is a delight to wear.

The ‘space’ between each glass is deep and would fill up beautifully with your favourite gemstones to make an every popular shaker locket, or of course photos as traditionally made for.

Very easy to open with hinged side opening at the the rear, just waiting for its new owner to fill it up !

Very Good Slight buffs to glass, insignificant.  Bale originally would have been an ‘open’ slide on bale which some time in antiquity had been soldered shut.  Not obvious and actually safer.  Only noting for accuracy.
