Antique Edwardian 14ct 14K Gold & Genuine Diamond Locket Pendant with Necklace

The use of stars to decorate jewellery was popular in the late 1800s/early 1900s due to the curiosity surrounding astronomy. They represent happiness and longevity.

This is an Absolutely Superb High Quality Antique Locket - it is Simply Beautiful and no pictures will ever do it justice. While it lacks a true hallmark, it is stamped inside "GOLD" and tests as 14 carat/karat gold.

It features a Genuine Diamond elegantly set within a "gypsy” or star-setting. The back features a monogram - EEM - which was typical of lockets at this time. Inside you will find the original frames ready to secure a picture or mementoes of loved ones and the stamping, "GOLD PATENTED". The patent would be for the disguised/hidden hinge. The hinge & clasp are in perfect good order with a fingernail tab to assist in opening.

Included is a 14ct/14K gold necklace - stamped - which I believe may not be the original.

It has that silky smooth associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique/vintage jewellery. It has a warm Antique yellow gold hue.
