VICTORIAN antique ivy and amethysts brooch locket back, 1889 :

VICTORIAN antique ivy and amethysts brooch with locket back, engraved 1889 and the name "Clara", with another illegible word, 1-3/4" by 1-1/3".

The gold front is concave and the stones are set on a bridge over the top of it, creating a lovely reflection.

Each stone has a slightly rounded top table in the older style.

The back has a locket with a cover for a photo or a lock of hair, and it is empty now, ready for whatever you want to put there. The settings are missing a few of the prong tips that hold the lavender stones, but the stones are stable nonetheless.

Also, there is a thin 1-/4" opening on the seam between the front and back of the brooch, again not anything that jeopardizes the brooch itself.

The clasp is the Victorian style hinge and open C style typical of this era.

NOTE: the dark area at the bottom center of the inner frame is a shadow from the setting above it, not something missing. There are some dents on the back only, as seen in the photo.   View
