A beautiful all original antique rolled rose gold and glass picture pendant containing lovely sepia photos of a "Aveline" and "Dickie" along with a secret lock of dark blonde hair.
This is a larger size pendant and good quality. It is stamped 'rolled gold' on the edge and still has it's original rose gold jump ring. The lovely clear photographs are delightful with the couple wearing elegant Edwardian period dress, you could replace them with your own photos if you wanted to. The pendant opens by unscrewing the round gold bead at the top allowing access to the inside. The glass covers are convex on the inside so it will accommodate small gemstones or other precious objects if you wanted to turn it into a shaker style locket.
Rolled Gold (Gold Filled) jewellery is made by mechanically bonding a thick sleeve of solid gold over a base metal. It is very durable finish that looks and feels like real gold 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.
