Story

Perfect, petite and proportional, a 14k yellow gold treasure designed and crafted by one of the mighty Newark jewelry houses takes on the guise of a small round locket in mint condition. Enamel decoration of the guilloché type gives this Edwardian locket its distinctive look.

A pattern of repeating swirling lines have been engraved in a circular design all around the 14k gold surface. Translucent enamel of a heavenly cerulean blue covers the incised composition to provide depth and magnify the visual effect. A border of opaque white enamel emphasizes the configuration and adds to perceived complexity of the visual arrangement.

A tiny pearl perfectly situated in the center enhances the hypnotic effect of the pattern. The interior still retaining its original white fabric interior (and may be removed) has space for two small photographs. The back of the locket is 14k yellow gold.

The chain is sold separately; ask us about matching a chain for the locket.

Date: Circa 1910.

Historical Notes: In 1891 the company became known as John A. Riley & Sloan & Company; in 1895 it became Sloan & Co and in 1896 an office was opened at 21 Maiden Lane in New York City. The firm produced elegant jewelry for high-end retailers including Cartier and Tiffany. Part of the Newark hub, the firm played a major role in the design and manufacture of jewelry from around the 1800s through to the 1950s as one of the major innovative players producing affordable jewelry for the middle-class. During the peak Newark jewelers produced 90% of America’s 14k gold and 50% of its 18k jewelry.
