Color Splash in a Victorian Gold Locket
Sold with Thanks

Gem cut bits of color are winsome in the gold engraved floral frame of this Victorian locket. The locket is raised engraving on the circumference and engine turned on the reverse. The engine turned engraving is done with a machine that enables the engraver to make very fine and regular lines in precious metal. Enlarge photo #4 to see the graduated diamond forms created by this lost art. It is known that jewelry is modified as it passes from one relative to another. I venture a guess, and it is only a guess, that this locket may once have held an early photograph that was exchanged for the tourmalines. It is also true that the stones could be original. The one inch diameter of this locket, as it richly shines with color evokes a smile. Chain sold separately. Excellent Condition
