A large oval 9ct yellow gold and old cut diamond (1.31ct) set locket from the Victorian period. The tactile large oval form draws the eye with intricate details. The romance and allure of old cut diamonds can be seen in the central raised section, which features a line of seven stones that have been securely claw set in square recesses. Attention is focused on these stones through an engraved cross hatched background. Sections of intricate rope twist, bead and granular goldwork border the central section and showcase superb Victorian craftsmanship. A large flexible bail completes the design, enabling this locket to be attached to a large variety of chain styles and thicknesses.
Originating in the 16th century, lockets became particularly popular in the Victorian period, when huge sentiment was placed on them as mementos of loved ones. Originally belonging to a wealthy lady, this locket combines sparkling diamonds with goldwork details inspired by the classical world. Of particular importance during the period were surviving examples from the Etruscan civilisation, which demonstrated incredible skill. A true statement to wear on a long chain against a black jumper, this locket is easy to open and transform into your own special piece.
