JET DIAMONDS ( Antique Victorian Mourning Jewelry Whitby Jet Locket / Pendant ): This beautiful Whitby Jet Locket, though over 125 years old (c 1870-80), looks quite modern in its design. It has been beautifully and artfully carved and polished so that both the domed front and back of the locket and the jet bale are covered with triangles or diamond shapes. Both hinge and clasp work well. When opened there are two empty compartments with their celluloid covers still in place. You could easily insert photos or a lock of hair as a memento of a loved one – living or deceased. The bale is attached on a metal ring and is large enough to hold the silver chain of your choice. It makes a very handsome piece of jewelry. It has become very difficult to find Jet of this quality.

Condition: Excellent. (Chain not included.) Some of the black paint is worn from the metal ring.
Size: Locket 1 5/8” high, 1 1/4” wide, 5/8” deep. Total length with bale 2 5/8”.
