This beautiful and very large banded agate 15k locket is extraordinary. The simplicity of the gold work and the rich, original patina combine to make this a unique locket.
It is designed with a large central black banded agate accented with seven matching banded agates around the perimeter. The agates are finely bezel set and even the original bail is decorated with a banded agate. It is hard to translate the size and depth in a photo. The reverse has a bezel that is easily removed to house a photo. It measures 2 3/8 inches X 1 5/8 across X 3/4 inches depth.
Superb in every way...England circa 1880
