Description

A French late 19th century gem-set fly locket, the thorax an old cushion-cut diamond estimated to weigh 0.5 carats, the eyes and wings set with rose-cut diamonds, the abdomen set with a cushion-set ruby estimated to weigh 0.3 carats and a pear-shaped emerald estimated to weigh 0.15 carats, on realistically carved gold legs, all set to a rock crystal frame mounted in gold, bearing French gold marks for 18ct gold and makers mark L.H. circa 1890, measuring approximately 4 x 2cm, gross weight 16.4 grams.

A charming locket pendant. Nineteenth century jewellery often featured insect motifs, and this piece is a lovely example of this trend. This special piece would be unique and eye-catching when worn as a pendant and would add Victorian whimsy to even an everyday outfit.
