Ask a question

Here’s a declaration of love in a small gold seal. The ladder to climb to the heart, the key to unlock the love within.

This was probably made at the beginning of the 20th century; I’ve had similar English hallmarked examples in the past.

The engraved round base is set with a sardonyx, as was common.

It’s small at just under one inch tall without the top ring – but that only adds to its appeal.


• Handmade in nine-carat gold (the colour is midway between rose and yellow)
• Set with a small sardonyx stone
• Approximately 2.3cm (almost 1 inch) tall
• Weight is 2 grams
• In excellent antique condition
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (my antique boxes are not for sale)
• Note: some of the other jewellery is for sale separately (some has sold) – please get in touch if you’d like information about any of it

Please examine the photographs carefully – they form part of the description.

I’d be very happy to send more information and images.
