Antique French 18k Gold Locket Ruby Pearl Belle Époque

La Belle Epoque translates as The Beautiful Era, and was marked by motifs that were light and airy and curvilinear. Those who didn't embrace the Art Nouveau movement borrowed it's lines and melded them with more classical motifs, a style that was so characterized by the garland motif it incorporated that it became known as 'Garland Style'.

This stunning antique French gold locket features a finely engraved floral garland, set with seed pearls and rubies. It was hand crafted in France in about 1900, and is made of 18 karat gold. The locket measures 39.5 x 28.5 x 4.4 millimeters, opens north to south, and has a built in frame on each side to hold two treasured photos. It is finely crafted in the French fashion, opens easily and closes securely. (Care should always be taken to close it, and all lockets at the edges, and not by pinching the center.) This lovely round locket weighs 5.4 grams, and bears the French eagle’s head hallmark for 18k gold.
