If you look to the cabochon shaped crystal you will see the gold bezel.    This is where the crystal locket cover is removed.   Once removed the area within is considerably wider than the crystal is ,  as the area under is broader than the opening.

You can add “electric blue”  ,  Royal Blue ,  pure white , Ivory , black , amber colour Or a piece of amber even …… for that matter ,  a jeweller could easily set a flat cut or even doublet Opal within etc etc.   Pretty much what ever you desire!    Once again ,  it would be Less than 1% of antique earrings ever made would posses this feature!!

Due to the wider interior than it appears ,  a photograph can perfectly be inserted and with the intentional curvature to the crystal  ~  the image will appear larger than it actually is!

The above is easily completed without any negatives whatsoever ,  as that is precisely what these were made for!    To be opened & to change whatever is placed within.  Initially it would have been a lock of a loved one’s hair , plaited / beautifully woven & placed within.
If given to a jeweller ,  there is 5 minutes work!

Perhaps these finely made 10ct Gold Victorian {tests to thereabouts ~ yet guaranteed to be at least 10ct}  earrings may have had photo’s originally ,  as was often the case with pendant lockets.
