This stunning antique Victorian 9ct rolled gold glass picture pendant is filled with real rubies and opals that are exquisite! The most amazing shaker locket, it opens by unscrewing the bale at the top to access the precious gemstones inside.
We have carefully counted them and there are 5 opals and 18 rubies all in different shapes and sizes. The opals have a fabulous play of colour and the rubies are all a vivid pink colour so they create the most beautiful visual contrast and sparkle. What a fabulous way to connect yourself with early 20th century fashion!
The locket is in very, very good antique condition with a gentle wear and light tarnish. The glass covers have very slight chipping around the edges as you might expect given age but the gold frame is close fitting with the gemstones safe and secure inside, please see the photos. The screw mechanism at the top is in perfect working order.
We have added a new gold vermeil (gold plated sterling silver) anchor chain that has diamond cut links adding even more sparkle to this beauty which, is ready for you to wear straight out of the box!
