This is a lovely, finely made Victorian locket of 9 K gold with lustrous little pearls all around & on the bale as well. It has beveled glass to the front, the back had glass also, but I've had it replaced with a gold filled solid back. The size is 1 & 1/16th of an inch in diameter with an extra 3/8th inch long bale from which to hang it. It's in very good condition. Under the glass I've placed an original oil painting (by me, painted in 2014, not a reproduction) of a skull. I've collected antique jewelry for years-entranced by the gorgeous workmanship & fabulous designs.I longed to purchase an original Lover's Eye piece, but they were thousands of dollars, so I decided to paint my own & put them in the antique lockets I'd collected.
