Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

Particularly cool antique locket fashioned from a single piece of black onyx, hollowed out and with a glass compartment to the back. A gold serpent is coiled around the middle of the stone... with a cartoonish face and rose diamond eyes. And,my favourite part, a mini version of the snake forms the bail. Dating from circa 1870, modelled in 15 karat gold.
