A splendid early Victorian piece, this sentimental delight remembers a loved one passed and comes from an age when sentimental jewellery helped to salve the heart. In lovely condition, all is original and nicely crafted. The scalloped 18ct gold repousse edging makes a wonderfully captivating frame to the glossy black enamelled panel which is so sweetly set with a forget-me-not flower picked out in gold wire and natural saltwater seed Pearls with a teensy rose-cut Diamond glittering at the centre of the the posy.
The reverse houses a rock crystal locket section which has a panel of neatly plaited hair inside. Measures 2cm by 3cm and closes with a secure 'C' clasp.
