This sentimental Georgian gold garnet locket has been lovingly passed through the centuries. It is designed as a crystal heart surmounted with a crown of faceted, flat cut garnets. The clear crystal symbolizes truth and purity, and the crown eternal loyalty.
It is small, and please note that photos are enlarged to show details. It measures 7/8 inches from the top of the bail X 6/8ths across. It has been joined with a 14k contemporary 16 inch trace link chain. It came with dried flowers enclosed, as seen in one of the photos which is easily removed if desired. Condition is excellent.
Given as a love token in the 18th century, it will remain a gift of eternal love to someone special.
England, circa 1800
