18K French Victorian Diamond Initial M Locket
A beautiful French Victorian initial "M" locket c.1870-1880, modelled in 18k gold and hallmarked.
It is such a wonderful locket, with the front of the locket featuring rope detailing around the frame, and the panel on which the "M" rests has groves for further detailing.
The inside of the locket features a glass door, typical of French Napoleon III lockets from the era. It opens and closes well.
The reverse of the locket is smooth and has some light surface dents appropriate to its age, this cannot be seen when worn as it is on the reverse. The front is in great stunning condition.
It measures 22mm x 37mm with bail, 22mm x 30mm without bail, and weighs 7.09 grams.
This listing is a custom project where the pearls on the locket will be changed to rose cut diamonds.
