A lovely Victorian hollow heart shaped pendant (not locket) from the 1860s-1880s.
This was a period in history when archaeological digs were in full swing across the world, and the resulting finds heavily influenced the jewellery designs of the day. The gold wire-work and granulation you can see on this design represents the Victorian obsession with ancient Etruscan jewellery.
The heart pendant is studded with two rubies - one red and the other more pink, and a round old European cut diamond. One ruby has a chip to the top left corner.
This is a lovely pendant fashioned in high carat gold and a fabulous piece of history. It will arrive in our recycled kraft box with our tailored gemstone care card. It does not come with a chain, but if you do need one we have a small selection of quality real gold pendant chains available here.
Delivery is fast and free UK delivery via Royal Mail.
