A splendid deep bodied fully hallmarked gold Edwardian mourning locket which was assayed* (tested for purity*) at Chester Assay Office in 1905. The front of the locket encases a beautiful lock of blonde hair which has been skillfully crafted into hair art embellished with tiny seed pearls. Pearls used in mourning jewellery symbolise tears for the dearly departed. The original protective glass cover and frame are present.
This locket was especially commissioned to hold a lock of hair.
The locket is of a solid construction and does not open to house portraits.
However, it will hold a replacement lock of hair, if desired.
The reverse side is embellished with a shield cartouche, which represents the desire to protect. The shield cartouche is framed by charming forget-me-not flowers. Forget-me-not flowers symbolise true love and respect.
This mourning locket is suspended from an impressive 9 carat gold antique cable chain necklace.
The firm of goldsmiths responsible for the crafting of this superior quality locket is G. E. Walton Ltd.
We understand how time consuming it can be to source a gold locket because so many of the lockets for sale are rolled gold or gold plated.
To save you time we only source fully hallmarked gold lockets aged over 100 years.
You will not see rolled gold, gold plated or gold back & front lockets in our stores.
We include images of the hallmarks and so you can be certain of the age and purity of the antique gold lockets in our store.
