This beautiful antique double sided locket was made in the 1860's at the height of what is called the "Romantic period" ofÂ the Victorian era, and is so beautiful on each side and has such a wonderful tactile feel to it. Made in 9 carat gold, one side is set with a turquoise and the other a cluster of turquoise surrounding a ruby. Both sides have an engine turned design that leads to the border which is so beautifully carved and the entire locket is still in exceptional condition which is made all the more amazing when you consider that it was made over 170 years ago. Measuring 21.7mm across by 32.5mm, inside it still holds an original lock of hair, and while many might consider this mourning jewellery, this is not necessarily the case as hair was often given to loved ones a token of love and with the bright blue turquoise and the absence of black, this all points away from mourning jewellery. While the hair can be taken out and replaced with a photo, it is still a lovely reminder of a beautiful time gone by. Regardless of which way is worn facing the front, there is little doubt that it will always be loved and admired. Stock# ES8842 Circa: 1860 $2,150

Here is a very rare antique six sided photo locket made in 18 carat gold in France in the early 1900's that is superb to admire when closed as well as when it is open. Whereas most photo lockets fit two photos, this one fits six and these multiple image lockets are often called "family lockets" as they can often fit in all members of the family. Made in an ingenious way that simulates a pocket watch, pressing on the top in the same way as a pocket watch will release the catch and the locket then unfolds on its own thanks to the springs in all of the hinges. It is just as beautiful on both sides of the locket allowing either way to face forward and always look so elegant. Measuring 2.4cm across by 3.6cm to the top of the bow, when opened it fans out to a wonderful 7.5cm across by 10.5cm to the top of the bow, making this a truly exceptional and unique locket.

Here is a gorgeous antique 15 carat gold locket set with European cut diamonds that looks as beautiful today as when it was made over 100 years ago. Whereas many antique lockets were made in what is called a "back and front" locket where there is gold sandwiched onto a base metal, this one is not only solid gold, but also 15 carat gold. This carat of gold was only used from 1854 to 1931 and often has such a beautiful warm rose colour that looks even more wonderful that the very strong and often too coppery colour of pink gold today. Measuring 21.2mm in diameter, the front is set with three lovely genuine antique European cut diamonds that total 0.06 carats, that have been set with such a delicate design around each. Able to easily accommodate two photos inside, this is such a beautiful and elegant example of an antique locket that can still so easily be worn every day. Stock# ES8540 Hallmarked: Chester 1910 $Sold
