Ask a question

From the last days of the Edwardian period comes this medium-sized nine-carat rose gold locket.

It’s fully hallmarked for Chester 1914, the year the First World War began, when gold production for jewellery virtually ceased until the end of the conflict in 1918.

The hand engraving reflects the skills and styles of the period.

Acanthus leaves flow around a plain central shield, with two little flowers sitting on top. Between the elements fine cross-hatching adds to the visual texture.

The overall impression is of damask rendered in gold.

Complete with inner frames for two photos, this locket even retains its original sturdy and partially hallmarked top ring.

It’s in immaculate condition, too.
