This exquisite 15ct Gold banded Agate locket back brooch is steeped in charming history. The front of the locket is inlaid with a smooth banded Agate, adorned by a black belt motif which in the Victorian era was used to represent eternity and loyalty.
Tucked away on the rim of the brooch at the back, is inscribed " Ann Verrall Obt. 8th June 1864", making this piece all the more special- the locket must once have held a photo of Ann. What a remarkable Victorian piece for you to have your collection!

EXCELLENT. A stunning antique 15ct Gold banded Agate locket back brooch! The Agate is completely smooth and without any damage. Every inch of the brooch is splendid, other than a subtle fading of the Enamel on its front. The Gold is gorgeous and bright, and the pin and c-clasp work beautifully together so she'll remain in place securely!
