A beautiful antique rolled yellow gold double sided glass picture pendant containing 2 charming black and white portrait photos of young Edwardian ladies that look like sisters.
The pendant opens by unscrewing the bale at the top and then use a scissor action to gently twist and remove the glass covers. This lovely locket can be enjoyed as it is or you could replace the photos with your own. The glass is gently concaved on the inside so you could put gemstones inside if you wanted to use it as a shaker locket.
The locket suspends from a new yellow gold plated sterling silver anchor chain with diamond cut links that add a lovely sparkle. Our chains are made in Italy, they are hallmarked and super quality.
Rolled gold (gold filled) jewellery is made by mechanically bonding thick sheets of solid gold over a base metal and rolling it. It is durable finish and a quality alternative to solid gold jewellery without the need to break the bank! Rolled gold has a significantly thicker layer of gold than gold plating.
A perfectly charming Edwardian period photo pendant/locket in lovely condition, a great sister gift!
MATERIALS: locket 9ct rolled gold, chain gold plated sterling silver
MEASUREMENTS: locket, 1-1/2" (4cm) tall, 1-1/8" (3cm) wide, 4mm deep. Chain 18" (46cm)
DATE: circa 1910, Edwardian

CONDITION: in very good antique condition with light surface wear as you might expect, the glass is pretty much scratch free and the photos are a little faded with age. The screw mechanism at the top of the pendant is in good working order and aligns perfectly to properly close it. Please see the photos and excuse the dark spots which are reflections on the shiny gold.
