An adorable antique rolled gold sweetheart pendant charm from the Victorian Aesthetic movement of around 1880-1890.
This is a small pendant in a lovely chubby heart shape The rolled gold plating is a subtle rose gold colour which is a lovely shade that is characteristic of old gold. The heart is engraved on both sides in a very pretty rose and leaf pattern. In the Victorian language of flowers the rose symbolises deep love and marriage.
We have added a new Italian gold plated sterling silver chain, so this little antique beauty is ready to wear right out of the box, the perfect love token gift! The chain is a brighter gold than the pendant but the colour will soon tone down once it is worn.
