An Art Nouveau era figural locket, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose decor features a woman in profile, dressed in a grecian gown. This lady wears a gentle expression; her hair is bound up in a French twist; she gazes thoughtfully at the urn sitting beside her. This scene is surmounted by a stylized, scalloped border. A small, sparkling old mine cut diamond is set (flush) into the locket's face. This locket retains its lovely original patina, and it's high color bloomed finish. It opens and closes with a satisfying snap. This hangs from an oval jump ring. It is marked 14k for purity.

"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
       Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on . . ."
                                    - John Keats, Ode to a Grecian Urn
