Bejewelled - Victorian 9K Gold Garnet & Pearl Locket. This lovely locket is crafted out of 9K yellow and rose gold, tested and confirmed. Featuring 4 genuine round cut faceted garnets, 15 natural seed pearls, Victorian styling, exquisite chased detail, and quality gold-work. This locket is oval in shape displaying beautiful expertly set garnets and pearls on the front face of the locket. There is a gorgeous rose gold satiny brushed finish on the front of the locket with a stunning chased yellow gold border. The back of the locket has a central rose gold portion, which is polished with a fantastic rich rosy - gold smooth patina. The back also features the gorgeous yellow gold chased border. The top of the locket has a lovely scroll and bale which adds design and beauty to the piece. The inside of the locket contains decorative clear liners, one frame, and plastic clear protectors. The locket is a back to front locket which is crafted from 9K gold and metal parts, adding strength to the piece, a characteristic of Victorian and Edwardian lockets. This locket has a lip type opening and opens and closes well with a snap closure. Lockets should be opened with your fingernail on the lip (never use tools to open the locket) which helps prevent any slipping and scratching. The locket should be closed on the edge of the border, not in the centre of the locket. The locket has been matched up to a 14K yellow gold filled Belcher chain. The pendant can be worn with a yellow or rose gold chain. This stunning Victorian piece looks stunning when worn, truly a piece to be treasured and enjoyed for many years to come.
