An absolutely gorgeous all original antique rolled rose gold and glass picture locket containing two marvellous black and white photos of a young lady and gent in Edwardian attire.
This locket is superb quality and in beautiful condition especially given age. It is stamped 'rolled gold' on the edge and still has it's original rose gold jump ring. The photographs could have been taken yesterday, they are still crisp and sharp with minimal signs of any real fading.
We have not removed the photos from the locket, preferring to keep it in this wonderful original state. You could, if you wish, replace the pictures with your own photos. The locket opens by unscrewing the round gold bead at the top allowing access to the photo compartment inside. Gently remove the pair of glass covers, replace the photos and reassemble the locket.
Antique rolled gold (gold filled) is a thick overlay of solid gold bonded onto a base metal, often silver. It looks and feels like solid gold and can withstand plenty of wear without loss to the gold layer, unlike gold plating which is prone to wear off.
We have added a complimentary 18" (46cm) rose gold vermeil (gold plated sterling silver) belcher chain for immediate wear. Our chains are new and made in Italy, they are high quality and fully hallmarked. The belcher or rolo chain with its elegant round links is one of the most popular antique style neck chains still available today and they are perfect for these antique lockets.
