Art Nouveau Plump Blossom Diamond Locket
* * SOLD * *
A lovely Art Nouveau era locket, modeled in 10k yellow gold, decorated with fleshy, twining leaves, their stems, and a single, diamond-set blossom. This botanical repoussé decor is finely realized— its inspired movement, fine stippling and linework set it apart from similar lockets of the period. The recessed surface behind our stems is textured with a soft hammered effect, and the whole locket is finished with a high color bloom. The little old mine cut diamond, at the flower's center, is approx .08 carats— it is white and lively. This locket contains two original photos. Locket rings and celluloid photo covers are present. Condition is exceptional. This is marked 10k, on the inside, beneath one of the photo compartments.
Total drop measures approx 35.6 mm (about 1.4"); width measures approx 27.2 mm (just over 1"); diamond measures approx 2.5 mm and weighs approx .08 carats.
