Edwardian Rose Gold & Platinum Locket

$1,700

An early 20th century locket made in rose gold and platinum, the restrained, geometric design presages the Art Deco period to come. The locket compartments were designed to hold photos, but they have a fair amount of depth and could easily accommodate larger mementos. The reverse side is engraved “JPW.”
