This gorgeous antique rolled gold picture pendant has a beautiful hand-tinted photo of an Edwardian lady in the front and an adorable baby in the back.
Crafted in warm antique rose gold this is a fairly substantial pendant with the photos protected by perspex (plastic glass) covers. It can be enjoyed as it is or you could replace the photos with your own. The photo compartment slides out by pushing it inwards from the back, there is a black satin liner and cardboard placeholders inside along with the photos. The compartment fits back in seamlessly and it is snug and secure.
The pendant is stamped 'Rolled Gold' on one side and 'Fix Fesi' on the other which is probably the trade name for the rolled gold. The rim of the photo compartment is stamped 'patent' and 'gilt metal' We have added a new Italian rose gold plated sterling silver Belcher chain for immediate wear.
A very pretty antique rolled gold picture locket that has withstood the test of time and she is just as lovely today. Antique rolled gold is a mechanically bonded sleeve of solid gold over a base metal, often silver. It is a high quality hard-wearing jewellery finish that looks and feels like solid gold without breaking the bank!
