An antique French glass locket is filled with dozens of tiny precious gemstones (sapphire, rubies and emeralds) to create this one of a kind shake locket. 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.
Add this beautiful kaleidoscope of gems to your favorite chain, or choose my sapphire necklace with the charm clasp, available for purchase separately.
Your locket will be packaged in a gift box and shipped with tracking.
