This 10k gold locket has a diamond in the front in a star-shaped setting. There are nice twisted mounting details and completely intact interior frames and lenses. Looks to have never been worn - it's what we called "deadstock" which means it probably has been unsold in a jeweler's vault for many decades. The monogram on the back is "HBS" or "HBI".
10k (tests) and diamond, new 14k gold chain
1" wide and 1 1/8" tall (inc bail), 18" chain
