Antique Victorian 9ct Rose Gold Carnelian Fob Locket
~Please scroll down for more pictures of this item~


Rarely do I have the pleasure to present such a Fabulous Antique English Rose Gold Locket – it is double sided so perfect to enclose pictures of loved ones to wear close to your heart. I am always taken by the quality construction of English jewellery and this is certainly no exception.

It is substantial and of classic, elegant design and styling. Each side features a different stone – Carnelian and Onyx – superbly framed by the feature scroll work at the top. It doubles as the bail housing the jump ring ready to attach a favourite necklace to.

Inside houses the original frames/bezels – one with a glass cover and a sweet little baby picture from the Victorian era. The hinge and clasp are in perfect working order.

It has that silky smooth feel of solid carat gold and to be expected of Quality antique jewellery. It has a very soft, rose gold hue so much nicer than the pictures suggest.

OVERALL

Near MINT Antique condition! I had one of the internal bars that holds a stone in place re-fixed by a reputable jeweller. With no wear, damage, dents or detracting elements like chips or cracks to the stones - it is a Beauty. If you collect Antique jewellery that you don’t see every day, this is sure to please! You will be thrilled with this one, Guaranteed! The pictures do not do it justice and any dark marks should be disregarded – the finish is pristine.

 What a fabulous addition to any Antique jewellery collection. Perfect for Gift Giving!
