Victorian Star-set Diamond Locket

$850

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".

This product is final sale.
