rare antique 9ct Gold shaker locket full to the brim with deliciously decadent jewels! Opals, Pearls and natural rough Diamonds cascade within its glass chamber... and the whole lot are enveloped in deeply-carved Gold.
Here we have a genuine Regency era locket, from the late 1700's to early 1800's, offered in excellent antique condition.
On one side we see intricate machine etched textures that catch the light beautifully on its domed surface, and on the other a glazed compartment filled with gems. It would have once been used with more sentiment; containing a photograph or a cherished lock of hair, but we couldn't resist bringing it to the 21st Century with a blaze of glamorous and fiery sparkle!
We adore the simple, etched bale which matches the rim of the locket, and we've added a solid 18" 9ct Gold chain so you can gift her or wear her straight away.

Steeped in history, this pretty antique Gold shaker locket has survived 200 years in exceptional condition. As a genuine piece of Georgian jewellery it's a pleasure to see it looking so good! The Gold is bright and beautifully carved, with no dents, dings or pin-holes, and the glass is immaculate. (A very rare thing of an item of this age!) The lid of the locket will open nicely when force is carefully applied but also stays firmly closed when worn, so you can rest assured you can wear it all day in complete confidence and still be allowed to change the gems inside when the mood takes you!
All in all, a fantastically pretty, versatile and regal piece that would make a beautiful gift for any occasion.
