Story

Hand engraving is a lost art. This technique was regularly rendered on pieces of jewelry from the 19th century. This locket of 9k pale rose gold displays that skill on both the front and back surfaces. Flower designs, most likely pansies intertwine with leaves and ornate engraving on one side as swirls ad leaf elements predominate on the other. Even the sides of the piece are incised with a foliate pattern. The double picture locket clicks shut and uses a tiny pull out knob to open into half moon shapes to reveal a hinged rim with removable glass cover. The surfaces of the rim are gold with the interior of another metal.

Date: Circa 1890.
