Circa: 1880 - Victorian
This conversion project started with a pretty antique locket brooch that we converted into a pendant. We improved on the sweet beauty of this special antique Victorian locket by filling it with approx. 5+ carats of genuine natural raw diamonds and included a pretty single romantic red garnet gemstone to float among the diamonds. The locket was acquired in England and has beautiful ornate engravings around the edge of the frame beside the center black enamel frame. Under loop magnification we discovered an engraved sentiment on the back that reads, "Friendship token from BP Kenyon". A very charming piece indeed!
