Antique picture locket dating from the late Victorian era. Fashioned in 15ct the locket has a very pretty ruby and pearl bordered edge styled with eight semi-circles set with white pearls grain set to a scalloped edge. These pearl sections are separated by a round dark red ruby in a square box setting arranged on the point. With a crystal front allowing the keepsake to be visible at all times.
We have added a petite Victorian gold horseshoe grain set with a dark red ruby to the bottom edge and with three pearls set to either side. The top of the locket has a gold ring and we have added a fine quality 9ct gold modern spiga link chain 16 inches long and with a trigger catch.
