A gorgeous, antique locket from France, with original glass on both front and back, has been filled with sparkling oval sapphires in multiple shades. Colors used are blue, orange, sage green, and yellow. The sapphires "float"beneath the glass, so they shift in position.
This locket's frame has the lovely, traditional Louis XVI "ribbon and reed" motif, so very French!
The glass is original, has a beveled edge, and has some minor scratches on the glass. They are barely noticeable when worn, and do not detract at all from the beauty of the piece. The photos were taken in extreme close up, so that the imperfections could be easily identified. Please do be aware that the panels are glass, and will break or crack if care is not taken.
To make the piece wearable for this century, I've chosen to suspend it from an oxidized sterling silver cable chain.
If you love jewelry with history and one of a kind pieces, this is a wonderful locket to add to your collection. It is now completely wearable for the modern woman!
