What a treat! Here we have four superb examples of Art Nouveau lockets from the early 1900s.

I've sourced them in the USA--and love each for their detail and style.

While the motifs vary, they have some elements in common. All are made of gold fill that's in extremely good condition. All are set with original paste stones. All close securely and hold at least one picture with the original frame in place inside.

If you were wondering, paste is a heavy, very transparent flint glass that was used to imitate diamonds or other gems. It's highly reflective, so it sparkles beautifully.

I've paired each locket with an antique gold fill chain that feels like a happy match in terms of finish, style and length.
