Story

Heart shaped lockets can convey the most poignant symbolism of love and affection. The enigmatic heart form is, of course, virtually universal. Moreover, the locket pendant itself holds what could be a litany extolling the values of love. Suspended from a chain or silken ribbon the surface tenderly touches the heart with meaning and emotion.

This front of this 14k yellow gold puffed heart is centered with a brilliant cut diamond of .05 carats. Details such as a hidden hinge and small fingernail indentation are indications of fine construction by Sloan & Company – a Newark firm that played a role as one of the major innovative players producing affordable jewelry in the design and manufacture of jewelry from the 1800s through the 1950s. The interior reveals compartments with original glass and rim inserts for two small photos or other memorabilia.

Date: Circa 1950.

Note: Any variation in color in our photographs is purely shadows, the locket is pure gold of even tone front and back and in excellent condition.
