Beautiful antique Victorian gutta percha locket bracelet. This rare beauty features a lovely dark black-brown gutta percha mourning locket with inlaid gold detailing and a single seed pearl in the center. The locket, measuring 1-3/16 inches x 1 inch (30mm x 25mm) not including the top loop, opens on the right with a small notch to reveal two oval spaces inside complete with both original glass covers and photo rings. It closes quietly and securely with a plain backside. The bracelet is composed of gorgeous round and tubular dark black beads, which appear to be true Victorian jet (untested). The bracelet measures approximately 7-1/2 inches in length with a beautiful safety chain, which prohibited me from laying it out completely flat for measuring (see 4th photo). The inside of the clasp is stamped with the maker's mark "K" and "S" with three tiny circles between the letters. The metal on this piece definitely has gold content, unmarked and untested. Please note, gutta percha is more of a dark brown almost-black, so the locket is actually lighter in color next to the black jet beads of the bracelet. Wear from over the years including light surface wear, faint scratches, discoloration to the gutta percha. The glass photo covers are a bit cloudy from age and may need a gentle cleaning--the glass frame on the right rattles slightly but seems secure. Slight wear to the metal especially on the outside seam of the locket where the metal has a pale gray slightly greenish hue and the inside borders around the glass frames. The black beads have a few teeny tiny flaws--not noticeable without very close examination under my loupe. Overall the flaws are slight for a piece this old, quite amazing indeed. A gorgeous rare complete Victorian bracelet to be treasured!
