Here is a very beautiful and elegant antique heart shaped pendant set with a tourmaline and rose cut diamonds that will always be loved and cherished and continually admired. Hand made in the Victorian period of the 1880's, this pendant was made in 15ct gold and sterling silver. Silver was used as like today, it was known that if you set diamonds in yellow, this could reflect into the diamonds. Today white gold, platinum or rhodium plating is often used , however before the 1900's white gold and rhodium plating was not yet invented, and platinum, although already discovered, was not used in jewellery making. The tourmaline in the centre has such a beautiful pink-red colour to it, and measures 0.28 carats. Surrounded by a total of twenty three rose cut diamonds, these diamonds total 0.18 carats and have all the charm and character of being genuine antique cut diamonds. Measuring 13.2mm across by 13.5mm or 20mm to the top of the bail, this antique pendant is one that will always look good day or night and is destined to be admired every time that it is worn.

Here is an absolutely gorgeous antique yellow gold double sided REGARD photo locket, that dates from the 1870's and still retains its original photos inside. "Regard" jewellery is often where the first letter of each gemstone "spells" out the word Regard, however with this locket the word "Regard" is spelt out in such a wonderful font along the edge of the locket. The font is so beautiful to admire and then there is also both sides of the locket which are exquisitely hand engraved. Made in 9ct yellow gold, the detail in the engraving is wonderful and so much finer than machine engraved or just stamped out in huge numbers. The locket measures 21.4mm in diameter and the photo sections 15.5mm in diameter. Complete with its original photographs, they really add so much charm and character. While these photographs can easily be taken out and replaced, we thought it best to keep them and let the new owner decide to remove the photos, put their new photos over the top, or simply leave them in place. With the wonderful hand engraving on the outside making this alone such a gorgeous piece to wear around your neck, to the lovely photos inside and of course the word "Regard" on the rim, this is such a beautiful and unique antique locket that is a real treasure.

In full length to sit perfectly around the neck, this fancy 9ct rose gold antique double Albert fob chain looks as beautiful today as when it was made well over 100 years ago. The Albert chain, or fob chain as it is also known as, was originally designed for a gentleman to hold a pocket watch at one end and the key to wind it at the other with the tee bar connected to the waistcoat. Years later when men put these down and started to wear wrist watches women started to wear these around their neck where they are quite often seen today. This particular one is all original with no extensions as there are many on the market that are not longer enough to go around the neck and have pieces or sections added. This one is all original and measures 47.7cm in length making it easily sit around the neck. There are six fancy double bar sections which are beautifully engraved with the fancy knot links between each section. With the tee bar suspended at the bottom, this section can also be used to attach a spinner or locket to add to the charm and character. Made in rose gold, the colour of the rose gold is so beautiful and looks so elegant on the skin. Rose gold has increased in popularity in recent years and there is nothing quite like antique rose gold with its lovely soft hue. In exceptional condition, this antique Albert chain looks as good today as when it was made. Stock# ES7661 Circa: 1900 $Sold
