This was an engagement present, and there's a love story behind it. There is an oval glass part that's removable, this is to put a photo behind. Piece weighs 7 grams. Lovely oval shape. Large solid real gold jumpring at top is also 18K and is part of the piece. This was given to me by my grandmother, it is an heirloom and completely irreplaceable.
1.5 inches tall by 1 inch wide by 3/8 inches thick. From the Victorian/Eduardian era. My family is British and this is the good, collectible stuff. I've never seen another one like it. To a good, appreciative home please.
Would make a greatgift for someone. It's so special. To an appreciative home please.
