This late Victorian locket is so much more than meets the eye. The classy exterior with a single offset sapphire belies the novelty within - four heart-shaped lockets that open in the shape of a four leaf clover.
10k gold (tests), 2.2mm sapphire, new 14k gold chain
Very good - a couple of small dings to the front and back; only one locket has its insert, none of the lockets have lenses
1" length including the bale, 5/8" width, 18" chain
1837 — 1901
