Here's a rare antique victorian two sided pendant with a carved coral bird on the front and a hidden photo window on the reverse. Length from top of bail is 1 7/8 and weight is 11.4 grams.... The gold tests at 18k yet I can't tell if it's seriously heavy plate or solid... One of the balls is discolored with a tiny crack where the turquoise nests and I wonder if that one was replaced?
It still tests as gold so it may just be tarnished from age. I haven't tried to clean it -- it's a stunning and rare piece!!! The item "RARE ANTIQUE 18k GOLD TWO SIDED LOCKET CARVED CORAL BIRD TURQUOISE VICTORIAN" is in sale since Saturday, February 6, 2021.
