Victorian 18ct Gold Locket With Natural Split Pearl & Rose Diamond Star Motif



A really stunning 18ct gold oval locket that was made circa 1880. It is set with nine natural split pearls interspersed with rose diamonds. The pearls are really well chosen as if you look closely the outer ones are flat on the inner edge then curved on the outer edge. How they found eight pearls like that is astounding. The attention to detail is amazing. Inside are two sections for photographs.
