Antique Victorian 14k Gold Locket Old European Cut Diamond Accent c1880-1890
No real marking that I can decipher, which is common for the time period, but acid tested as 14k on outside and inside.
Excellent condition. I buffed the outside with a soft jewelers cloth, but did not clean the inside as I do not mess with objects this old. I thought the stone was marcasite, but it tests as diamond. It is tiny and darker. My jeweler says it's an old mine cut and that they are often dark or have inclusions. This one is too small to tell much. It has the original inserts and photo covers, which are yellowing but my be cleaned or replaced. I would not replace them on an antique, but it could be done.The locket has some wear minor wear inside, where it opens, but is pristine on the outside.The last two photos show this clearly. Please see all photos, as they are part of the description. If you have any questions or need more photos, please message me. This is an exceptional piece and over 100 years old.Thanks for looking and for helping us give to animals in need.
