Here is a truly magnificent and exceptional antique locket that dates from the late Victorian era of the 1890's and is so unique and like no other and will certainly be such a wonderful talking piece that will always be loved and admired every time that it is worn. Measuring 34mm across by 45mm or 57.5mm to the top of the bail, on the front is an image of a woman playing a flute sitting next to a turtle. This is such an exquisite depiction and one that will have you admiring it every time it is around your neck. With fine hand engraving of a body of water, tree and a small hill, both the woman and the turtle are highlighted in rose and the rare green gold. Gold is alloyed with other metals that results in producing different colours. Rose gold is made by primarily adding copper to the gold when being alloyed resulting in the lovely warm tone to it, and today when green gold is made the green colour is more a soft green-yellow colour. However years ago cadmium was added resulting in a stronger colour. While never a strong green such as yellow or white gold, the tone of green in antique pieces is more pronounced especially when set against sterling silver. Able to hold two photos inside, this antique locket is as beautiful as it is unique and once photos are placed inside, this will become so much more personal and special.
