Antique locket set with pearls and diamonds in a border of enamel

This antique photo locket dates from the Victorian period of the 1890’s. Set with two rose cut diamonds, these were first cut in India at the end of the 15th Century, this cut was perfected at the diamond cutting workshops in Antwerp and Amsterdam, and was very popular during most of the 16th and 17th centuries. Because the base of the diamond was flat, stones were often foiled back to improve the brilliance of the stone. This was achieved by applying foils or tints to the base of the stone.
