A sumptuous antique Victorian date hallmark (1857) yellow gold romantic keepsake locket with an ornate fully hallmarked yellow gold 18 inch twisted rope necklace. This impressive locket is embellished with deeply symbolic motifs. The shield cartouche on the front symbolises the desire of the donor to protect the wearer. The shield is framed by florid acanthus leaves which have meant everlasting life and longevity since ancient times. Acanthus leaves also grace the back of the locket. Floral motifs are also depicted, including the forget-me-not. The locket and necklace are crafted in ways that ensure they absolutely gleam from all angles. Both the locket and necklace are in superb condition. The catches and hinges work perfectly. Both of the original locket frames are present.
