Imperial Russian Demantoid Garnet Butterfly Locket


Crafted during the Imperial Russian era, this locket reflects the opulence and sophistication of the time, featuring influences from European styles but still retaining a specifically *Russian* look. It's set with demantoid garnets and reflects the era's emphasis on symbolism and sentimental value. When open, there's an unmistakable resemblance to a butterfly's wings: transformation bejeweled! It's marked "56 zolotniks", or 14k gold.
