Large Gold Filled Locket. Vintage Van Dell Locket Necklace, Round locket with blue and green enamel flowers, vintage floral locket
Spectacular, bold, gold-filled vintage locket necklace by Van Dell. The front of this large round locket features intricate blue and green (enamel?) flower detail that surrounds an open area waiting for your monogram. The back is plain and quite shiny! Marked inside locket "VAN DELL 1/20 12K GF." Clasp on chain is also marked "1/20 12K GF" (see pictures). Van Dell, an American jewelry company, began making jewelry in the late 1930s or early 40s (it depends on what book you read). They were known for high-quality silver, gold, and costume jewelry. Age of this necklace is unknown (50s-70s, probably), but it's in well-kept vintage condition with very minor wear. Vital statistics: The locket is BIG. It measures 1-1/2"" in diameter, not including bale. Please see picture with ruler for better idea of size. Chain is 24." Locket snaps closed securely.

This lovely vintage turquoise cocktail ring features a centered large natural round cut cabochon of turquoise. The turquoise is beautiful with a nice textured appearance, and is surrounded by a halo of cream colored bezel set seed pearls. This ring is crafted of solid 14k yellow gold and is in good condition with some overall wear.
I am getting interested in the faceted look of a moonstone and having it set on a high setting so I can have a large stone and a regular wedding band that doesn't fit awkwardly. I love the look of the princess cut turned into a diamond shape.
