I have a hunch this locket was made in America right after the Civil War, around 1870. All that abstract scritchy-scratchy background engraving? That texture appears on lots of American jewelry from that period. The woman who appears in the tintype inside looks like she has Seen Some $hit but wears some fantastic jewelry of her own. The center diamond is hypnotic.
