A most touching tribute to a love lost. This solid gold Victorian mourning locket holds two poignant locks of hair behind glass compartments and has lovingly been kept safe for perhaps 150 years. Both the enamel work and the hand engraving of roses (symbolising love) and scrolls have been completely hand crafted with great skill and care. It would be lovely to think that this piece could be passed to a new home where it will receive the care and appreciation that it deserves.
For scale, the locket measures an inch from the bale. The metal is 9ct gold ‘back and front’, meaning that the hinges etc are base metal for strength.
