Antique Victorian 18K Gold Cabochon Garnet Diamond Heart Pendant
Rare antique Victorian garnet and diamond pendant and locket, circa 1860. The crystal on the reverse can be removed to encase hair or a photo. The garnet is a fabulous cabochon garnet that gives the heart dimension. The top of the garnet is set with a 5 pointed star that has 6 diamonds weighing about 0.10 carats total. The pendant is wonderfully detailed with delicate engraving on the gold sides of the heart and even buffed garnet set on the top of the bail. Truly a romantic and sentimental piece of Victorian jewelry. The locket is 1.18 inches long and 0.75 inches wide.
