A delightful diamond shaped fully hallmarked gold locket which was assayed* (tested for gold purity*) at Glasgow Assay Office in 1915. The exterior case of this Art Nouveau portrait locket is embellished with ivy and acanthus leaves and a shield shaped cartouche.
The shield motif conveys the desire to protect. Acanthus leaves symbolise everlasting life. Ivy leaves represent the strong bonds of friendship, marriage and family.
The portrait compartments are fitted with gorgeous chartreuse watered silk linings. One side of the portrait compartments is fitted with a clear portrait protector and the original removable frame. The hinge and catch work perfectly.
This locket is ideal to store keepsake mementos such as locks of hair, portraits or photographs.
Suspended from an elegant 18 inch 9 carat gold belcher chain this piece would make the most cherished birthday or anniversary gift.

We understand how time consuming it can be to find 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.
