Exquisite, antique, large yellow gold double locket with original photographs RARE
Each of the 2 covers is solid 10K yellow gold while the heavy perimeter and handle are gold filled
In over 35 years in the business, I’ve only seen a few pieces similar to this – very rare
Beautifully made; gorgeous style, detail and workmanship
A hinged cover on each side opens to reveal an original photo inside - one is a portrait of a man, the other a woman; I believe they are daguerreotypes because they appear to be reflective like a mirror (hence they were a bit difficult to photograph for this description)
Your jeweler can replace these photos with others of your choice if desired
The case is meticulously engraved all around its perimeter with very high relief designs; the handle is also engraved on both sides
This very special locket is reversible
A feint, swirly monogram, “MW”, is engraved at the center of one side
This rare treasure would look fantastic suspended from a chunky Victorian chain - our shop has a nice selection of them so do search our listings; I’ll be happy to send you a photo of the locket on your chain choice for your approval.
Very nice antique condition with only minor wear commensurate with age and use
Dates from the mid 19th century; extremely collectible and rare
The locket and bale measure 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) X 1.75 inch (4.4 cm) X 5/16 inch (7.9 mm) deep
Although this special piece is not marked, it has been acid tested and is guaranteed
A real gem that catches the eye and looks fabulous on!
Don’t miss the opportunity to own this really lovely piece of jewelry that will add elegance to any outfit.
