This 18 karat yellow pendant locket features an ivy crown. Ivy is an evergreen plant, it represents eternity, fidelity, and strong affectionate attachment, such as wedded love and friendship. This round form matches perfectly with two portrait's pictures. There is one gold circles you can remove to fix the pictures inside, and you can also add a picture on the other side.
There is no chain provided here but it could be wear with a long chain or a black ribbon. Do not hesitate to ask and we can find the perfect one you want for. The clasp opens easily and snaps shut firmly. It is in very condition for an item of this period (c. 1900/1905) even though there are few traces of wear, barely visible.
The pendant is marked with the Eagle's head the French mark for 18 karat gold, and an other mark, which seems to be the maker's mark but it is unfortunately quite hard to read. It weighs 6,5 gr and measures 35 (1,38) x 25,06 (0,98) x 5,96 (0,23') mm. The bale is included in the high.
Art Nouveau's style was strongly inspired by this kind of design : flowers, nature, birds and makes any jewels of this period very poetic.
