Victorian 14K Gold Diamond Paste Large Onyx Locket
Antique Victorian locket necklace, circa 1880s, rendered in a black onyx with a diamond paste front and the reverse housing a 14K yellow gold display locket hinged window. The thick locket has a sparkling paste center surrounded by 14K gold with the back having a beveled framed hinge crystal. Suspended from a ribbed bale, the locket would be perfect hung from a black ribbon or chain. A lovely piece of mourning jewelry that is as beautiful and wearable today as it was well over 100 years ago!
