This charming antique rose gold plated English locket is beautifully engraved on the back in a fern pattern with the front featuring a glass panel framed in a floral decoration.
A feminine Victorian style and versatile the locket can be worn with either side facing to vary the look. An unusual design and stamped 'patent pending' the locket is hinged on the bottom and it opens from the top to reveal a photo compartment along with the original photo ring and clear hard plastic cover. Nice and puffy there is plenty of room inside for other tiny keepsakes too.
Lovely quality, the locket is rolled gold (gold filled) which is a mechanically bonded or heat fused overlay of solid gold onto a base metal, often silver. It is much thicker than modern electroplating and withstands more wear. The locket has a heavy duty bale at the top and we have added a new rose gold vermeil (gold plated sterling silver) 18" (45cm) belcher chain. Our chains are made in Italy, fully hallmarked and excellent quality.
Condition is very, very good showing expected signs of age and wear, please see photos. The hinge is heavy duty and in perfect order with the locket snapping tightly shut with a satisfying click. The floral and leaf engraving is still beautifully crisp and the glass front is free of chips or cracks.
