Art Nouveau rolled gold locket featuring an ornate negligee drop design with paste stones. This oval locket closes securely and has two areas pictures could be secured. The locket hangs from a new 9ct gold chain. 


Rolled gold is a hybrid metal consisting a thick layer of gold that is fused by heat to create one or both sides of a base metal of brass or copper. Usually rolled gold consists of 5% gold. This process was patented in England in 1817; it became popular in the 1920's and 1930's and was used in high quality vintage jewellery. Rolled gold is better quality than gold plated jewellery. 


Art Nouveau is an ornamental style of art that became popular between about 1890 and 1910. It is characterised by its use of long organic curved lines and shapes intertwined with flowers and foliage and used in  jewellery, fabrics and art designs.


WHY WE LOVE IT

A lovely sized locket allowing for bigger pictures inside. Also its makes a real statement with the warm rose gold and bright stone detailing making the piece really special.
