Rare and highly collectable genuine antique Georgian Era Rose Cut Diamond Heart Locket. This beautiful locket features pave prong set foil backed rose cut diamonds set into a silver topped gold mount.

The locket easily opens and closes with a small space for a special memento to be tucked inside.Traditionally this may be a lock of hair, dried flower, and in modern times - a photo. The back is a clear crystal so that your special keepsake can be viewed without opening the locket and kept close to your heart while wearing. Jewelry from this time period was for the landed wealthy only and was all custom made to order.
