A fully hallmarked antique rose gold locket which was assayed at Chester just after the end of World War One (1919). Crafted by Somers & Eccles this splendid and ornate solid gold photo locket is in superb condition. The rose gold is absolutely captivating. The front is embellished with the most enchanting scrollwork and a shield, which symbolises the desire to defend the recipient. The back is just as charming - a single ivy leaf just above a full set of hallmarks, which represents everlasting love, deep friendship, fidelity, or wedded bliss. Above and around the ivy leaf is a absolutely stunning scrollwork forming highly stylized foliate and just below the original bale is the most gorgeous lily. Lilies have been known to represent innocence and purity since ancient times. The interior contains two recesses for holding photographs. This antique is so beautiful that it also makes a stunning pendant. We have included a 50 cm vermeil necklace so that this adorable locket can be worn immediately. The locket is sound in every way and closes securely.
We know how time consuming it can be to source solid gold lockets, as there are so many gold front & back, gold plated and rolled gold examples for sale.
To save you time we work hard to source only hallmarked gold lockets.
