A gorgeous and exquisite, example of a rare, enchanting early Georgian Victorian or earlier Pendant Locket. In the form of an elegantly shaped puffy heart. Sure to become a fabulous addition to your charm bracelet or necklace. Perfect for display in a glass case. Featuring a series of three circular pave' antique natural Persian turquoise gemstones. The glazed glass hair compartment on reverse (a circle closed glass or rock crystal back bezel) is uniquely faceted, locket portion of the pendant is secure. Beautiful repoussé work. Exquisite hand-etched etchings. Master Craftsman detailed scroll work with undulating pretty swirls. These are becoming so hard to find and are escalating in price daily. Due to it's extreme rarity, you would pay a small fortune for this gorgeous 'work of art' at a finer antique or vintage estate jewelry store (over $400 - $700) so this represents a wonderful opportunity to own a beautiful antique treasure at such a great price. This tiny keepsake heart is very elegantly crafted. A piece of miniature sculptural and curvilinear pavé settings. The chain enhancer can attach to other jewelry. The gems are set extremely close together and feature a smooth cobblestone pattern close to the surface. Gives the appearance that the surface of this fine jewelry is "paved" with gemstones. Simply Exquisite...
