Enamel, Diamond and Seed Pearl Locket Necklace
Dating from the mid-Victorian period, this oval glazed locket is composed of 18K gold, rose-cut diamonds, split seed pearls, and enamel. The 18K bloomed gold locket is ornamented with floret motifs formed with box-set rose-cut diamonds and split seed-pearl petals, joined by diagonal lines of blue champlevé enamel, and opens to an interior glazed double compartment, all suspended from a braided 18K gold wire chain, and together with a blue velvet period London jeweler’s box. With its richly-colored bloomed surface and abstract patterning, this refined locket is at once an appealing jewel and a keepsake for beloved images to wear near the heart.
