Georgian Diamond Crystal Heart Locket Pendant Necklace

People often ask me how I know what to buy, and the truth is, I don’t. I never have a list, I have an idea, but mostly I’m just looking for amazing jewelry that is authentic, that speaks to me when I hold it in my hand. Yes, it has to be lovely, and yes it has to be masterfully crafted; but truly it’s more than that. I’m looking for things that I know instinctively have a story to tell, have a history, it’s almost like my hands feel the hands of all those who came before, I can’t help but wonder who they were and how they came to possess this particular treasure. I felt it when I opened this box and took out this glorious locket.

This Georgian diamond and crystal heart locket was fully hand crafted down to the cutting and polishing of the stones in about 1830. It is set with 1.25 carats of Old European cut diamonds which form a sparkling bow of gems above the crystal locket. The crystal is bezel set in 15 karat gold and the diamonds are set in silver. Overall this wonderful pendant measures 41.4 x 22 mm and I’ve paired it with a Victorian 15 karat gold chain because I thought that they looked nice tougher, you may purchase just the pendant if you wish. The chain is marked ’15c’ and is 18 inches long with a smooth barrel clasp, it weighs 12 grams. The pendant comes in it’s own box, I don’t know whether they started life together, the box is from R.L. Christie in Edinburgh, Scotland. This locket does not hinge, it would need to be opened by a jeweler. If you would like us to put something in it before it goes out to you, we’d be happy to. It would also be an excellent candidate to make into a shaker, we would be happy to let you choose your desired gems to go inside.

This gorgeous locket ticked all my boxes, it’s a wonderfully made piece in lovely condition with so much history and style. It truly has grace.
