There is something so special and personal about a photo locket and there is something even more special when the locket is an antique one that you know is a one-off, and here is a truly delightful gold antique locket with the most sensational enamel work on the front that will always be admired and cherished.
Made in 14ct yellow gold in the early 1900’s, this antique locket measures 23.5mm across and is the perfect size to wear all the time.
The enamel technique on the front is called GuillochĂ¨ enamel, which is when a very intricate and precise engraving is carved into the metal, in this case the gold, then the enamel fired over the top resulting in a magnificent pattern and depth to the piece which is stunning to look at and admire.
Like many antique pieces of jewellery with enamel, it is not just a matter of enamel on the front of the locket, rather it is the intricate detail that makes this antique locket so special and unique. And as if the design on the front wasn’t enough, the locket is set with a natural pearl in the centre for even more charm and character.
The reverse side of the locket is plain, showing the rich colour of the yellow gold and could even be worn this way in the front as it looks so elegant and simple in its own right.
An antique locket around your neck is a delightful way to hold a photo of someone close to you even closer to your heart, and this is a wonderful enamelled antique locket that is simply perfect.
