An antique French glass locket is filled with dozens of tiny sapphires and tanzanite in shades of sage green, blue and periwinkle to create this one of a kind shake locket. The oval, circle and triangle shapes float freely beneath the glass, giving a kaleidoscope effect to this pendant. The locket is made from a thick layer of solid gold over brass, a technique that was perfected by a young French jeweler. The pieces were so well done that they were often mistaken for solid gold. The locket clicks shut with a satisfying sound, but can be sealed for more security. The glass is original to the piece, which is likely at least 100 years old (or more) so some surface scratches are visible but not distracting when worn.
