How adorable.......both sleek and lacy ...... so charming, delicate and beautifully feminine without being frilly...... We love things this artful !!
This sweet, but not too sweet heart locket is made in elegant pale yellow gold and decorated with finely engraved stylised floral motif....and the matching bale, all executed in Palladium ! What fine engraving and intricate yet toned down design of this whole piece.... The gorgeous proportions and wonderful detail, the flat surface of the locket with a delicate, fine white Palladium decoration are all spot on !! All very smooth and tactile, think of angels' breath.....
The locket is made around 1910 in England and hallmarked with 9 CT&Pall on the reverse. The Palladium is a rare metal to see used in antique jewellery even though - you might be surprised to learn - that is was used for jewellery making by the ancient Egyptians and in Europe from around 1780. The locket unusually opens from the bottom and not side and the closing mechanism is tight and in great working order ! The locket is in super condition and the gold developed a lovely time kissed patina..... so gorgeous !! It measures 0.88 by 0.76 inches and is 1.18 inches long including it's beautiful bale. It weighs 3.8 grams. Due to being bi-colour it looks wonderful on silver and gold chains, also a platinum one will look fab! If you see our photos, it loves hanging off a chunkier chain too, like a book chain necklace, all yours for giving it different and unique looks. The chains in the photos are not included in the listing, but are listed separately.
We are in love ...... with this heart of angelic and gentle beauty. It's style is strong but whispered so softly .......and it has a barely visible secret ( obviously ! ) message inside.... FROM E TO B.........we do love a bit of romance :)
