This lovely locket is a bittersweet reminder of the popular mourning practices of the Victorian era.
Fashioned in 14k solid gold, this beautiful round locket has three fiery diamonds -- with a 15 point total weight -- diagonally set on the back and the initials JML engraved on the front.
Inside the locket is a lock of brown hair, which could have belonged to a lost loved one or possibly a sweetheart. Comes on a 14k gold rope chain with a gold-tone replacement clasp.
Height with Bail: 1.5"
Condition: Very Good
This piece has been tested, inspected and appraised by a certified gemologist. The back (diamond side) of the locket has numerous surface scratches and a slight worn spot near the bail. The engraved side has a similar light wear spot near the bail and shows light signs of wear. There are small chips in the diamonds that are noticeable under a loupe. Priced accordingly.
