Victorian Etruscan Revival Large Cabochon Garnet Locket Pendant 15k Gold

As baubles go, this one is extraordinary. A nod to the vanished elegance of a time gone by, a time of castles, mansions, and chateaux, when beautiful people dressed for dinner and women came into a room in a flutter of the softest silk and smoothest velvet. Chandeliers were lit, fires crackled, candelabras blazed, turning garnets like these into rich luminous velvety drops against alabaster skin.

Gorgeously hand made in England in about 1870, this wonderful locket is set with a rich and velvety large oval cabochon cut garnet. The garnet measures 20 x 15 mm and is set in 15 karat yellow gold. The front is embellished with the twisted wirework and beadwork that was the signature of Etruscan revival style. This locket measures 50 mm north to south and 27.4 mm across, it contains two frames with glass all ready to hold photos of your loved ones close to your heart. The locket weighs 17.9 grams and has no hallmarks, it has been carefully acid tested to verify the gold content.

Large, richly red cabochon garnets like this one just make my heart go pitter pat. They beg for intimate dinner parties in cold months with roaring fires and blazing candelabras.
