This is a Victorian Mourning Watch Fob Locket Pendant with layered onyx on one side and carnelian on the other, all set in 10K gold. The locket was sealed when I got it, but I opened it.

Beautifully made natural pearl starburst pendant. This piece appears to have been designed with a couple of uses in mind. The matching pearl bale makes it an obvious pendant.

(We do not have the screw that attached to the stud, but that would be easy to replace.) The starburst has eight points an...
