Antique Art Nouveau Diamond Locket Pendant in 18k Gold

A have a weakness for all things Art Nouveau. Furniture, jewelry, silver, art, I love it all. So, you can imagine that I went a little weak in the knees when I saw this locket lying in a jewelry case under the rare Newark, English sun. The winking diamond was the icing, glittering on this perfect little cake. 

This wonderful round locket has very Art Nouveau lines, with it’s frame of stylized gingko trees and it's sparkling Old European cut diamond for added interest. This locket was hand crafted in 18 karat gold, it’s unmarked, but we’ve acid tested it just to be certain. It is most likely European in origin and dates to about 1890-1900. The inside has two frames ready to hold your treasured photos. The gold has a rosy hue. This locket measures 34.2 mm from top to bottom including the bale and 24 mm across, it’s 6 mm thick and weighs 10.7 grams. The locket opens easily with a thumb tab just under the bale and closings with a satisfying little snap. 

This one is a beauty, it would be equally gorgeous on a simple black cord or a nice vintage chain!
