The elegant visage of a woman in French garb is enamel painted upon the face of this lovely gold locket pendant. Her hair is styled in a fashionable up-do, and she is decorated with flowers, bearing a serene expression as she stares off. 15k yellow gold frames her face, extending to make up the body of the pendant, with a simple hinge that allows the locket to open up. A ring bale at the top permits your favorite chain to be threaded through, so you can hang this beauty around your neck.

Condition: The painted enamel face has held up well over the years, with deep, bright color hues to the paints, and quality details to convey the life-like image of this woman’s portrait. There are only some very minor and typical surface scratches to the painted enamel that do not affect the color of the design. The diamonds are all sturdily-set, and the gold is a high-quality 15k. Both the inner front and back locket rims each have a small chip to the thin gold there.
