This pretty 9ct Gold antique enamel locket is a rare example of the whimsical side of Victorian jewellery. Of course, it's full of symbolism and romance, as most Victorian jewellery is, (ivy leaves represented fidelity, trust and ever-lasting love to the Victorians!) but this locket is light-hearted, playful and a real joy to wear.
The combination of yellow Gold and pale duck-egg blue is match made in heaven, and we love the fact you get two completely different looks from each side!
The front is full of movement and colour with those lovely stylized ivy leaves, and the back has a more traditional engraving in plain Gold. Here we see the initials "H.C.J 1946".
It's a beautiful piece, steeped in history and nostalgia, so is the perfect gift for those of you who love the charm of old and lovely things!
ERA: Victorian (1837-1901)
MEASUREMENTS: 33mm long (inc. bale) / 24mm long (not inc. bale) x 20mm wide x 7mm deep.
MATERIALS: 9ct Yellow Gold back and front, Enamel.
HALLMARKS: None present, tested as 9ct Gold back and front.
CONDITION: Very Good
This beautiful antique enamel locket is in very good condition. Often these Victorian lockets are found in poor condition with lots of enamel loss, whereas the enamel on this one is stunning! As with the majority of antiques we can't say she's perfect, but the vast majority of the enamel is intact and there are no areas of damaged, scuffed or loose enamel. The beautiful blue enamel we see is very much intact and has plenty of life left! (It's only when you look very closely that any loss is visible).
The back or plain Gold side of the locket features slightly more wear. It has two dings to the back which are visible when the light hits it in a certain way, but we still love it regardless! It's a fantastic piece of Victorian jewellery you'll love wearing, offered at an amazing, affordable price.
