With beautiful hand engraving on both sides, this antique locket will sit and look perfect on any chain around the neck, and once photos are placed inside, becomes so much more special to the wearer. Made in 9 carat rose gold in 1915, many antique lockets were made as back and front lockets which were made by having two sheets of gold sandwiched over a base metal, and although these are perfectly fine, there is something more special about ones made in solid gold such as this one here. The colour of the rose gold is just divine having such a warm tone to it as well as having a place in the front that can be engraved with initials if one wishes. Measuring 16.2mm across by 20.5mm or 32.8mm to the top of the bail, inside this locket can hold two photos and is just perfect for any time of the day or night.

With such a beautiful design on the front, this sterling silver antique locket dates from the 1890's and has a wonderful floral design on the front that is highlighted with green gold. Gold can be alloyed with other metals such as copper to produce rose gold, and while not common today, modern green gold is made it is a very soft green-yellow colour, however years ago it was made by adding cadmium to the alloy 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 as can be seen here on the front to emphasise the leaf design. This subtle colour comes through so lovely and adds such a wonderful unique aspect that makes it so much more unique than any modern that is just mass produced today. With a gorgeous border as well as a design running vertically down the front, the locket measures 36.5mm across by 44.8mm or 57.2mm to the top of the bail. Able to hold two photos inside, this is such a beautiful example of a genuine antique locket that will always be admired and loved. Stock# ES9020 Circa: 1890 $1,750

Antique jewellery is so often so unique with such wonderful features and characteristics that are no longer seen in modern jewellery, and this is exemplified here in this amazing antique seal that hides a secret photo locket compartment in the base. Going back as far as Roman times, after a letter was sealed with wax, the writer would stamp the still warm wax with his or her seal to prevent the wrong person from opening the letter, as once broken, the wax seal could not be used again. Remaining popular all through the Georgian and Victorian periods right up to the Edwardian era when this one was made, the look of seals are always so unique to one another and look wonderful on a necklace. Made in 9 carat rose gold in 1906, the beautiful scroll work on the seal alone is so wonderful to admire as is the bloodstone set into the base of the seal. The base measures 21.6mm by 18.1mm and stands 24.7mm high and the colour of the rose gold has that wonderful warm tone to it that has achieved such a wonderful patina to it. Opening the base where the bloodstone is set reveals a secret photo locket that makes it so much more special and unique than any other locket or seal. Antiques are made all the more wonderful in thinking who owned and wore this seal and whose photo was placed secretly inside. From near or far, this will not only always be admired, but also be such a wonderful conversation starter. Stock# ES8064 Hallmarked: Birmingham 1906 $Sold
