Details

Antique Edwardian 9ct rose gold oval locket featuring decorative lines with fine criss-cross patterns within the lines. The locket is framed with a scalloped ball design. The design on the front of the locket is reflected on the back of the piece. The locket opens to show on the left-hand side an area to place a picture with a frame and cover and on the right-hand side a picture or keepsake can be stored.

 

The locket hangs from a new 9ct rose gold chain. On the back of the locket it has a number of hallmarks indicating the piece is 9ct back and front, meaning the interior is not gold although the front and back of the piece is 9ct gold.

 

The Locket is perhaps the most mysterious and alluring pieces of jewellery. Only the wearer knows what secrets lie within the locket. It has to be the ultimate love token. During the Victorian era, young Victorian women would hide a picture of a man they admired, if the man offered up a lock of hair a marriage proposal usually would follow. Lockets were considered a statement of an intention to marry.
