Early VictorianRuby, Garnet and PearlUrn Locket

This wonderful early Victorian urn locket is fashioned in 15k yellow gold with rock crystal lenses. The urn is articulated with a fiery array of flat cut garnets and crimson rubies offset by lustrous pearls ranging from gray to creamy white. This memorial locket would once have housed a lock of hair belonging to someone dear to its owner. The original hair is long gone which means that this locket is ready to hold new lock of hair, photo or other tiny memento. Hangs from a new 18" 14k gold chain.
