About

A beautiful and unusual diamond heart locket pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Made of 14kt yellow gold, this lovely piece has a decorative design comprised of Rose Cut diamonds and rich black enamel. The heart-shaped pendant has an open framework, and each sparkling Rose Cut diamond is individually prong set within a raised buttercup setting. The largest diamond is suspended in the center, surrounded by a sunburst of black enameled rays that fan out from all sides, extending in between each diamond forming the border. The edges of the piece have a gold scalloped pattern, and the back of the piece reveals a removable glass frame, allowing a special photograph to be stored inside. At the top of the piece is a complimentary gold bail with a single Rose Cut diamond set within the topper. A very strong Victorian piece, it has a unique and romantic appearance, and would look perfect paired with a gold chain!

The pendant hangs 1 3/4" long, is 1 1/8" wide, and approximately 5/8" thick.
