An exquisite Edwardian era locket with a soft and lovely satin gold finish. A central bright pink stone adds a nice glimmer of color.
The soft sheen on the old gold is beautiful to see and a finely millegrain border adds contrast.
+ All the details
This is a gold filled locket with a brightly gilded interior and on it's original soldered suspension ring. The stamp 'SD' is on the bail suspension ring.
The locket opens towards the front and has original fittings - there are two photo rims, one has a ribbed metallic blue backing paper and the other has a celluloid cover which has an interesting raised dimple to cover the back of the stone.
The pink stone is not glass (quite possibly a little ruby but untested).
Size: 1.1 inches or 26mm diameter with a slim profile of approximately 5mm.
Age: very early 1900s
Weight: 5.7 grams (without the chain)
Presented on a new 22 inch or 56cm chain, 14ct gold fill and stamped as such on the clasp. Photograph #3 shows the pendant and chain on a life size torso.
Condition: very, very good. A little spotty inside, no nasty dings or scratches, there is a tiny scuff mark just below the bail loop (seen in image #1, mentioned for accuracy but barely seen at actual size) closes with a nice snap and stays closed, the hinge is excellent.
A chic and elegant locket that is very minimal in style - truly lovely.
