Antique Lady in the Moon Locket
truly one of a kind gold-fill oval locket with classic Victorian rhinestone-studded crescent moon and star motif, added to at a later date with a finely engraved woman in profile; using the star as her eye and the moon as her hair. the interior with two compartments for storing photos or other keepsakes. retains one removeable frame, currently occupied by a black and white image of (what must have been) a beloved cat. rhinestones catch more light than photos show. unmarked.
