Full details

Regular price $154 On sale (AUD)

This stunning open locket is one of Simone's most popular designs. It's beautiful to wear as a statement piece and makes a memorable gift for a someone special. It comes with our upgraded adjustable chain, making it a very versatile design.

The pendant features a beautiful Victorian-era winding leaves pattern on the two domed panels and a partially hidden ruby gemstone inside.

For the front panel the intricate pattern is cut out, while the inside of the back panel is etched with the same leaves pattern, with the recessed areas slightly darkened. 

The outside of the pendant has been given a matte, brushed finish, while the inside is bright and shiny.

Partially hidden inside the locket is a perfect pink lab grown ruby, with both the faceted gemstone and the shiny etched surface glimpsed through the cut out panel at the front.

The two panels are suspended from a sparkly sterling silver chain which is finished with a sterling silver clasp. The adjustable chain can be worn at different lengths and you can add more length with a silver chain extender.

The panels swing freely from the bail at the top to form an open locket.

Note that the design of the open locket is not intended to hold photographs or other keepsakes.
