Some jewelry is pure art!

This Victorian Etruscan revival locket, made in either the late 1800s or very early 1900s, features a natural piece of green jade carved in the shape of a ram's head. Framing the jade are forget-me-nots and gold swirls punctuated with gold granulation. The back of the piece is open but covered with a piece of glass, making this receptacle a likely piece of mourning jewelry!

The ram's head in Chinese culture is a good luck totem and a harbinger of prosperity and wealth.

NB: The photographed chain is not included in the purchase.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your jewelry will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan.

We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one!
