This gorgeous antique Gold heart pendant was likely made during the Edwardian era between 1901 and 1909.
The front is beautifully hand engraved with a mixture of pretty little flowers and delicately scrolled leaves as was typical of the time and it has a "puffy", three dimensional shape so it catches the light as you move. And the detailed engraving draws the eye!
This romantic heart pendant is made solid 9ct Yellow Gold, and it has somewhat of a Rosy tine to it, as much antique jewellery of this period does. It's a fairly dainty size so is great practical piece for every day wear, and looks fantastic with casual wear or on a romantic evening out.
What's unusual about this piece is that despite it's size it's actually hallmarked for Gold three times! Once on the jump ring, once on the back and again subtly on the front, (at the 5 o'clock position). Again this tells us this is a really well made antique and is probably why it's been looked after so well all these years!
And it comes complete with a 16" or 40cm solid 9ct Gold chain so you can wear it straight away.
Please note this item is a pendant and NOT a locket.
ERA: Edwardian (1901-1909)
MEASUREMENTS: The pendant itself measures approximately 20mm tall x 17mm wide, excluding the hoop. The chain is 16" or 40cm long and weighs 1.4g, and the pendant weights 1.7g..
Total weight: 3.1g
MATERIALS: 9ct Gold
HALLMARKS: "9", ".375" on both the pendant and the jump ring. (The assay and date letters have mostly been polished away but I think I can make a faint date letter, possibly "b".)
This beautiful hallmarked Gold Edwardian pendant is in beautiful antique condition. The Gold is lovely and shiny with a high polish to attract the eye and Gold marks are easily made out on both the pendant and the substantial jump ring. The engravings are still beautifully crisp, and the pendant is pristine with no dents, dings or pinholes which are quite common in jewellery of this era.
The chain is a later addition and compliments the Gold well. It's a solid Gold chain rather than rolled or plated so is suitable for daily wear.
