This pretty Yellow Gold locket is from the Edwardian Era, circa 1905, and features beautiful textured details and an embossed border.
This lovely antique locket is extremely decorative and beautiful! It has a warm golden glow. The striped engraved detail draws the eye and the three dimensional wavy border is just lovely. Even the bale is beautifully designed with a scrolled flourish!
The blank circle in the centre was traditionally used to engrave your initals or the initials of your sweetheart, but we think it looks charming just as it is!
Looks great on and a good wearable size. Would make a lovely addition to anyone's jewellery box.
The chain is not included. A selection can be added at the checkout if required.
ERA: Edwardian (1901-1909)
MEASUREMENTS/RING SIZE: 22mm wide x 28mm tall excluding the hoop.
MATERIALS: 9ct Gold back & front
HALLMARKS: "9CT BACK & FRONT". Tests as 9ct Gold.
CONDITION: Very Good
This unique and beautiful antique locket is in very good condition for it's age. There is no damage to be seen, no dents, scuffs or pinholes and it opens and closes shut tight. Only some very light surface scratches commensurate with age.
The locket is a little stiff to open but works well and will keep your photographs safe inside. The inside is in good clean condition. There aren't any inner frames but if you cut your photographs to the correct size they will stay nicely in place. The jump ring and decorative scroll on top is original and in good strong condition ready to wear and enjoy.
Please note this is a 9ct Back and front locket as was typical of the time. On close inspection if you look at the sides of the locket you can see a slightly different colour along the rim. This is where a stronger material such as brass has been used for the inner frame for added strength and durability. This is not visible from the front when worn and is normal for lockets of this age.
