14K Rose Gold Victorian Etruscan Hidden Compartment Pearl Pendant 16.7 GramsNice large antique Victorian Etruscan hidden compartment locket pendant. Rose gold in color. Missing two pearls. Some dents on the bottom/back of the piece and minor edge flea bites. Hollow compartment under the lid. Original glass. Frame for glass is not gold - gold filled over brass. Balance on the piece has been acid tested and analyzed. Needs the pearls replaced and can be worn as is or repair the small indentations on the back. A slight rattle to the piece, not sure what is causing it. Some light tarnish to the gold inside the case which is not uncommon when you have a karat gold with silver mix. The gold does not tarnish, the silver in the piece is what tarnishes. These are pretty scarce.
Please note, when having pieces like this 3rd party evaluated after purchase, please have them reviewed by experts in antique jewelry. Unfortunately, traditional jewelers lack the knowledge and expertise necessary to evaluate these pieces which can create issues, and obviously returns are quite costly.

All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Where appropriate, acid testing has been used as well. You will not buy gold or silver from me that does not meet the industry standards for how the piece is marked unless noted in the listing.
Gemstones have been tested using a presidium gem tester and have not been reviewed, except where noted, by a gemologist so please assume they are lab produced stones as my opinions are only my opinions. Diamonds have been verified using a presidium diamond tester, they have not been sized or graded by a gemologist. All measurements of stones have been done using a digital caliper, are approximate and may not be exact.
