FINEST Antique LARGE Victorian 14ct SOLID Gold DUTCH Locket ORNATE Pendant
FINEST Antique LARGE Victorian 14ct SOLID Gold DUTCH Locket ORNATE Pendant. WELCOME TO CLASSIQUE JEWELLERY! You are previewing a truly GORGEOUS locket of some quality; amongst the very finest of its kind you will find anywhere. This really DOES have to be seen in life to be truly appreciated as no amount of images can capture and portray the beauty and splendour that it possesses in the flesh! Victorian piece of adornment of DUTCH origins. This is a tested. Locket, NOT a’Front & Back’ piece as was so often the case with lockets from this era but an ALL solid gold pendant, fully tested to a 14ct purity, and having the relevent Dutch FEATHER Hallmark stamp to the eyelet. The gold has accrued a. NOT the rich rosiness of ROSE gold, but a colour far removed from the brash yellow of modern gold. 3.5cms long, 4.5 cms. Including its bale, by. It weighs a solid 7.4. On my scales, 0.26 ounces. This has a wonderful, rustic, high relief’Dutch’ decoration to the front with chased decoration to the rear. It opens, via a hinged rear panel, to reveal deep recesses and internal compartments, suitable for storing/displaying photographs, locks of hair or other such keepsakes. The’door’ is shallow and would be ideal for a lock of hair, miniature or photograph. The internal, deeper compartment, could house something more substantial, if desired, although this also has its original GLASS and can also house a photograph. It also benefits from being in a very good condition, especially so considering this is probably around 120 + years old! It appears NEVER to have been used for keepsakes. It has a couple of tiny dings & pimples, inconsequential in my opinion, that serve to enhance its charm and authenticity rather than detract in any way. The hinge and clasp are sound and secure, ensuring this closes firmly and surely. It will come fitted on a new, 9ct ROSE/red gold on solid SILVER chain, (NOT the chain listed here which is base metal for photography purposes only), that can be worn at a variety of lengths from 16-18 inches, although it can, of course, be worn on a chain or bracelet of your choosing. It truly is amongst the finest lockets of its kind you will find anywhere. DON’T let it get away! You will do WELL to find another example of this quality and beauty, especially at such a great price!
