Vintage Garnet Multiple Photo Heart Locket Necklace 14k Yellow Gold
This stunning large locket is impeccably made and ready for your precious memories! The heart shaped solid 14k yellow gold locket has a domed and quilted style top set with round old cut garnets. The gold is textured and the heart fits into a gold rimmed frame. The locket opens from the bottom and hinges at the top, which is unusual. The outer edge of the bottom portion is also outlined in twisted rope so it isn't immediately obvious that it is a locket, it can also be worn as a bold pendant. Two little notches in the gold on the left and a tiny notch on the bottom tip of the heart allow it to open. Inside, the back of the heart is highly polished like a mirror finish. Folding into the box are two heart shaped connected frames which have opening slots on the top. Two pictures can be put into each of the hearts which then fold back into the locket. The thick bail allows this to be worn on a thick chain or a mid-size omega. The piece is not stamped but tests for 14k and weighs a hefty 26.5g. This is truly a piece of heirloom jewelry that can be treasured for generations to come. The pendant measures 1 7/8" in length including the bail. The heart itself measures just under 1 1/2" in length and is 1 1/4" across at the widest point.
