An intriguing and rare Georgian 9ct Gold Opaline mourning locket. This locket is a marvel, and we can hardly believe that she's existed for nearly 200 years in such exquisite condition!
The locket has been crafted from 9ct Gold, and has a sizeable bale in order to support its weight when suspended from a chain. The inside of the locket has an Opaline panel on the back, which shimmers with a soft iridescence of mauves and tangerine! Resting upon this is intricately moulded hair on both sides, which would once have belonged to very special people that someone wanted to keep very close.
We think it's incredible that a piece like this will end up in someone's jewellery box, or perhaps a collector's archive where it can be appreciated in all its glory.
ERA: Georgian, c.1830.
MEASUREMENTS: Locket is 69mm long including bale.
Locket is 55mm long x 45mm wide.

Condition:EXCELLENT. This rare Georgian 9ct Gold Opaline mourning locket is in superb condition. The glass is without any scratches and the 9ct Gold is bright and buttery. There is only some small discolouration to the Gold thread inside the locket, but this is to be expected from a piece of authentic Georgian mourning jewellery and, other than this, the piece is completely pristine.
