New w/ Tag OLD Antique Nouveau 10K Rose & Yellow Gold GF Repousse Locket Pendant

~Please read the description then scroll down for the full display of pictures – just click on them to enlarge for more detail as they are part of the description. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me~


This Art Nouveau style locket presents beautifully and still has its original sales swing tag attached. I’ve not come across one with such magnificent design and styling. The locket’s body has a yellow gold hue with the front featuring a fabulous repousse design that encompasses a plain, rose gold hued disc/cartouche perfect for engraving with one’s monogram. The gold has a matt-like sheen that is shiny yet has developed the patina of time.

The back in plain and smooth and inside includes both the original frames & covers although they are a little cloudy with age. The original jump ring is hanging from the fixed bail which will accommodate a chain of your choice.

The locket has the silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique jewellery.

There are no detracting elements to note – no wear, dents or repairs – it is otherwise as new. It is extremely rare to offer a locket this age in this near Pristine condition – it is NOT to be missed.
