This is a beautiful locket fob that spins. I purchased it to keep as an heirloom within my family because I fell in love with it. I have verified 8 ruby stones and mother of pearl, but the center stone is not a diamond with starburst around it. I would love input on how to tell if it is a crystal, or a white sapphire...or anything else it may be according to someone who may know more about this locket. The back is the gold sandstone. It has 1 original glass lense with trim around it to hold it in. The blue paper inside looks original as well. I do keep pictures of my children inside. It has gone through the washing machine 1 time and amazingly no water got inside. The pictures were still perfect with no evidence of water getting in. I would love to know peoples guesses on the possible era timeframe it is from, and anything else you can think I would like to know about this type of item. Possible Appraisal? Thank you.
