We love this spectacular Victorian Gold Amethyst cross locket! Rich in divinity and decadence, this statement piece encapsulates the rich Gothic revival aesthetic that dominated this period.
Poised at the centre is a gorgeous Amethyst inlaid with a Gold and Seed Pearl cross motif! Both gemstones symbolise spiritual protection, so we get a sense that this locket was worn to protect both the wearer and the person whose photo would be inside the locket.
Another interesting feature of this locket is the delicate engravings on the surface, making this locket opulent and eye-catching. If you or your partner loves statement antique jewellery, this piece is for them.

VERY GOOD: This Victorian Gold Amethyst cross locket is in fabulous condition. There is some evidence of light wear on the Jump ring and at the top and bottom of the locket, yet this owes to its age and does not detract from its total brilliance!
The locket securely fastens and smoothly opens with an intact glass panel which will protect and hold the photo inside. Overall, a sumptuous piece to add to any antique jewellery collection!
