This beautiful antique Victorian locket is a warm shade of old yellow gold and ornately engraved on the front in a gorgeous floral and fern flourish pattern. Designed to look like a pocket watch the locket opens from the top by depressing the little button on the 'winder', it springs open to reveal 2 generously sized stations inside to display your precious photos.
A quality piece the locket body is rolled gold (gold filled) and the round engraved area on the front is a sheet of solid 9ct gold. Rolled gold jewellery is made by mechanically bonding a thick sleeve of solid gold over a base metal, it is a very hardwearing finish that looks like real gold jewellery as evidenced in this beautiful piece, it really does look and feel like a solid gold locket!
A fabulous pendant style locket in an elegant statement size and you can happily wear with any of your favourite gold necklace chains because of her extra large bale. She is in beautiful condition too with only light wear in keeping with age. The engraving still beautifully crisp, the hinge is in good order with the locket snapping tightly shut with a satisfying click.
