A lovely 18K yellow gold locket, the front decorated with an engraved and gem-set pansy. The flower is beautifully engraved, the shiny areas of engraving nicely contrasting with the semi-matte Russian finish on the rest of the surface. The flowers upper petals are set with small amethysts, and the lower three petals with a pair of emeralds and a rose-cut diamond. Another emerald represents a flower bud. The stones, though small, have superbly saturated color. The pansy is an especially appropriate flower to be featured on a locket, as its French name pensee is also the word used to express thoughts or memories. The lockets back is beautifully engraved with a VC monogram. The interior retains the original photo frame. The locket is fully hallmarked with the tete daigle mark for 18K and with the goldsmiths mark. Origin: France, ca. 1890. Condition: excellent. Size: 15/16 x 1-5/16 (excluding jump ring). Weight: 7.7 grams.
