Victorian Gemstone Phoenix Locket

Who's been through a LOT? Have you recovered from something rough, and have been transformed by the experience? The phoenix might be a symbol that resonates with you. A mythical bird from Greek mythology, she cyclically regenerates. After being consumed in flames, she rises from the ashes of her predecessor, born again stronger than she was before. This badass beast is encrusted with rose cut diamonds and old cut rubies and emeralds. Ruby cabochon eyes glitter fiercely. Heavy 18k gold.
