If you like to stand out from the crowd then this antique shaker locket is the statement piece you've been dreaming of! Beautiful Rococo scrolled patterns adorn the Pinchbeck framed glass perfectly complementing the jewels caught inside; a sea of rough yellow and white Diamonds, Amethysts, Garnets and ravishing Opals!
Although not crafted from Gold, the chased design is in keeping with the Georgian era and boasts the work of an expert craftsman and as such can be admired as a piece of art!
Pinchbeck was often used in place of Gold during the 18th century by people who frequently travelled. The highways were often littered with thieves and robbers so if the jewellery was stolen it would be of lower value and it would deter their wagons from being ambushed. One can only imagine the adventures this antique locket has experienced, what adventures will it accompany you on?
To sweeten the deal we have added a whole array of gemstones for your pleasure! It would have originally been used as a locket to hold a photograph or a lock of hair, to personalise this antique shaker locket you could add your own image if you wish.
