Amazing Victorian Austro Hungarian Silver Garnet Amethyst Turq. Locket Pendant:
I am pleased to offer this Exquisite Antique Austro-Hungarian Silver Gilt Locket Pendant. It dates mid to late Victorian era. It is all original, set with Turquoise cabochons, oval bezel set faceted Amethysts, bezel set seed pearls and a large blood red oval Garnet cabochon in the center. All stones are original and present. The locket hangs from an ornate bale set with 2 Turquoise stones and a Garnet in the center. The locket is silver with a gold gilt that like most of these pieces has lost some of its gilt. It shows mostly on the back of the loclet that has an intricate hand chased floral and scrolled motif. Most of the gilt is present on the front of the locket and on the interior. The beveled glass and frame for photos is present. The gems and pearls are in excellent condition.
The locket measures 1-3/4” by 1-1/4” across without the bale. The bale measures just under ½” so the pendant hangs down a bit over 2”.
The bale is large enough to slip through any size chain . Insert 2 favorite photos and wear this magnificent locket with pride!
This is a rare, wonderful antique piece with all original parts. Similar pieces are selling on the internet from over $200 (not in great shape) to over $600. A great opportunity to own this fabulous heirloom offered with . Thanks for looking!
