18K Gold & Aventurine Glass Double-Sided Locket



A lovely and very unusual 18K yellow gold, rock crystal, mother of pearl and aventurine glass (“goldstone”) locket. The locket is constructed as a beveled oval frame of aventurine enclosing a pair of rock crystal windows, one of which opens to allow access to the inside of the locket. A mother-of-pearl plaque can be left in place so two photos can be displayed or removed so the locket can hold a lock of hair or a pressed flower. This is the only aventurine locket we have seen. The bail is stamped with French 18K gold import marks.

Origin: Europe, ca. 1920. Condition: excellent, all original. Dimensions: 1-1/8″ x 1-5/16″ (excluding bail). Weight: 8.4 grams.
