Details

This wonderful antique Victorian Gold cased Locket is adorned with a line of lovely baguette cut Turquoise stones, Circa 1890.

Turquoise stones are considered a symbol of friendship and were once said to bring good fortune to the wearer. The stone is also associated with the Forget me not.

‘Forget-me-not, O Lord!’ is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time when the poor knight suddenly fell in and sank to the bottom. Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this.

The Locket is beautifully engraved and set in Gold gilt displaying pristine Victorian workmanship of it’s time.

The Locket opens up to reveal a photograph and a lock of hair which belonged to a loved one long ago. These items can be removed if you prefer so that you can add your own history to the piece.

This is a beautiful, collectable antique Locket that would look lovely displayed on a Gold chain.

Weighs 9.3 grams.

Measures 21mm across x 33mm down x 46mm down with bale.

Excellent condition.
