Antique sterling silver locket highlighted with rose and green gold.
This antique locket was made in 1884. Incredible to think that it is still in exceptional condition well over 130 years later, and able to hold two photos inside.
Highlighted with rose and the much rarer green gold. When modern green gold is made it is a 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.
