Magnificent Antique Gold and Silver Rock Crystal Locket
Three rock crystal gemstones set off this magnificent antique Victorian gold over sterling silver locket! The large and thick oval locket has a center raised drop tab with three open back faceted rock crystal stones emulating the berries of the ivy. A detailed engraved ivy leaf covers the rest of the locket. The pendant opens to reveal two thick compartments for holding a photo or memoir complete with ring on one side. The back of the locket is smooth with a large bale topping the locket. I have the locket shown with a necklace offered in another listing should you care to put the two together. This listing is for the locket only.
