Victorian era antique locket in sterling silver and green gold
This antique photo locket will hold two photos inside and dates from the 1890’s.
Highlighted with rose and green gold, 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.
