A simply beautiful vintage Victorian locket, yellow gold-filled with an elaborate sculptural design accented with hand-engraving, circa 1880’s. The locket is oval shaped and measures 1 5/8-inches long (42 mm) including the bail, 15/16-inches wide (24 mm) and 7/16-inches (11.5 mm) in depth. Design on the front is a raised X-shaped motif with a textured recessed background and a 5 mm decorative ball in the center. Reverse has a less dimensional design but is equally beautiful. It is hinged with a traditional clasping mechanism that functions properly. Condition is very good: there is a dent on the reverse and minor scuffs and scratches consistent with age and use. It has been lightly polished.

Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is.  I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist.  I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc.  I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty.  If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina.  Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can.   Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
