This Victorian 10k rose gold locket is a double-sided beauty! One side has a hand carved onyx intaglio and the oposite side has a smooth onyx stone with natural multi-color layers. The intaglio is a Roman figure profile. Both stones are very dark with undertones of a deep red.The plain stone has an irregular corner (chip as photographed) and has the dark layer with white underneath. The locket opens and closes easily, which is nice.
Inside, you will find a photo of a lovely Victorian woman. There is some aged toning and spotting to the photo. The initials on top A.May be attributed to her. The glass insert above her photo is intact. The one from the left side is missing and the onyx stone jiggles in its setting, but stays in place. 1 x 1 x 3/8inch.
The stones were gemologist verified and the gold tested as 10k (no hallmarks). Overall this is a very lovely piece and unique accessory. Condition: very good vintage condition, vintage patina, chip in onyx stone. 100 % of the items I sell are pre-owned, vintage, or antique.
