Period Piece Movie Help

I'm looking for a movie from my childhood. It was most likely released in the late 80's / early 90's, and is a period piece taking place in turn of the century Europe. There fairies or magic of some fashion, a crystal ball figures into it, perhaps, and maybe a locket. My most vivid images of it are: someone falls through an ice sheet early on, and at the end the lead is hanged, but he wants death because he misses his love. That's about it.
