Antique Solid Gold Hallmarked 9 Carat Locket Necklace 1911


A superb fully hallmarked antique locket which was crafted by Albert Ernest Jenkins in 1911. This splendid piece is ornamented with swallows and garlands of roses on both sides. An ornamental bow is attached to one of the garlands. The engraved bow symbolises the desire of the donor to give themselves to the recipient. Swallows are seen as lucky talismans for those who travel, ensuring a safe return home. Roses symbolise love and adoration. The catches and hinges work perfectly.

This antique was assayed* (tested for gold purity*) at Chester Assay Office in 1911.

The locket is suspended from an elegant 9 carat gold 18 inch necklace.

The interior of the locket is fitted with the original frames and watered silk linings and so portraits or locks of hair can be fitted easily.

Super condition throughout!

This George V era antique will hold two portraits or photographs.

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 antiquity and purity of the antique gold lockets in our store.
