Antique Locket | Jugendstil 800 Silver Locket with Ruby | Round Satin Finish German Silver Locket | Edwardian Era - 20 inch Sterling Chain


An elegant German Jugendstil locket from the early 1900s, subtly embellished with a fine border and silver scroll work and featuring a central ruby.

The silver has a lovely soft satin finish and the faceted stone gives a sudden flash of deep pink with bright light.

+ All the details:

The locket is of German descent with an 800 silver stamp to the soldered suspension ring. Round in shape, hinged at the bottom edge and opening towards the front, the locket has a plain back.

There is a single photo rim inside with new black backing card.

Locket Size:
1.18 inches or 30mm in diameter, with a slim profile gently curving out to approximately 5mm in thickness.

Age: early 1900s

Weight: 6.6 grams (locket only)

The Chain:
Presented on a new sterling silver chain 20 inches or 51cm long, stamped to the clasp for Sterling Silver. Shown on a life size torso in photograph #3.

Condition: Very, very good. Fine surface wear all over, no nasty scratches or dents. The hinge is excellent, the locket closes with a nice snap and stays shut. (needs a sharp finger nail to open)

Janne's Notes:
Jugendstil is the German movement that coincided with Art Nouveau in France. This is a lovely example of the style, just beautiful.
