HUGE 14K Gold Vintage Faux Emerald Seed Pearl Teardrop Locket Charm Pendant15.8g. Offered today is HUGE and beautiful solid 14k yellow gold 1960s "faux emerald" (this beautiful green stone tests as glass on the Presidium gem tester) and genuine seed pearl locket. This piece could also be used as a VERY BIG charm on a VERY BIG, heavy gold charm bracelet, if that's what you're into. It will be noticeable either way! The quality of this entire piece is exceptional.The back of the piece is a large pear-shaped polished plate of solid 14K gold. Some people get these inscribed (I have a couple of others listed, with inscriptions).
This one is NOT inscribed. The next layer up is another solid plate of 14k gold (textured) and is bordered in braided gold rope twist. In the center of the locket is the hinged thick gold filigree basket. The hinge is at the top, as you can see. It's bordered by a channel of prong-set seed pearls, all original and still with great lustre, then thick scrolled filigree inside the pearls, and the large pear-shaped chunky emerald "gemstone" finishes off the piece.
The locket opens to reveal a pear-shaped compartment into which a small photo, hair or other memento could be stored. You really have to appreciate the workmanship in this piece--it's truly exceptional. They don't make stuff like this any more!
The locket/pendant/charm measures 1 5/8" by 1 1/4". I have shown it on a chain in the photos for a size reference--CHAIN IN PHOTOS NOT INCLUDED--you can add your own chain. It is hallmarked 14K inside the locket cover, and it weighs a massive 15.8 grams. It is in EXCELLENT vintage condition.
