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

Here is a rock crystal cross, that is not only a religious symbol but a breath taking sculptural jewel and statement of individuality and elegant choice. With clean, simple lines and hand carved prism forms, this cross provokes a gasp in reaction to its natural beauty. The basic form of the cross is simple geometry. The poles north, east, south, and west are cut off squares with interior prisms cut into the crystal. Enlarge the photos and you will appreciate how the artist emphasized and volumized the geometry and dimension in this linear form. Lengthly and abbreviated triangles were expertly carved by the jeweler and polished to arrest our eyes and amaze us. All lines are strong and join at the center where an "x" of crystal meets all points. Here the center does hold our senses. The gold top cap agrees with the triangular details. There are no scuffs or abrasions to the crystal or to the gold. c.1940 Wonderful. c. 1940 Perfect Condition Measurements 3 1/2 in long, 2 in wide
