This superb antique 14ct Gold Locket is such a rare and heart-warming treat!
Antique Gold lockets are always difficult to find in good condition, but to find such a fine quality piece with such a striking design, paired with its glowing halo of natural cornflower-blue Sapphires is really one-in-a-million!
The central glazed panel of the locket can be removed (with care!) and trinkets or other sentimental items placed beneath the glass for safe-keeping.
The Edwardians often kept a lock of their children's hair close to their heart, or perhaps a photograph, whereas today the trend calls for heaps of gems to shake within. So, we've added a generous sprinkle of natural and untreated blue Sapphires and natural freshwater Pearls so you can shake to your heart's content!
The design of the inside of the locket doesn't disappoint either, as a series of engraved lines radiate from its centre like a beautiful graphic sunshine.
The back of the locket is also exquisite, exhibiting how fabulous the craftsmanship of the Edwardian era truly was!
