Story

“S” is for sweet heart and the first name of your beloved. Nicely proportioned, a vintage locket pendant is made from palladium, a rare and expensive metal most commonly used from the late 1920s through the mid 1940s for jewelry.

Infrequently used in the jewelry of today, the metal is similar to platinum and is renowned for eternally retaining its icy whiteness.

This fantastic locket is what we refer to as new old stock — the term used when fortune brings forth authentic vintage or antique inventory which was never sold or worn. This example is made by Lucien Piccard and still has its original tag in place when the 1940s price was $53.00 - an expensive item in its day!

Round in shape, the pendant features an upper case letter “S” set with twelve cultured half pearls each 4 mm in diameter. Surrounding the letter is palladium open work letters spelling out the words “sweet heart”. We love that it so subtle you have to really look for it.

The piece is opened by pressing through an opening in the front (or using the rounded end of a paperclip) to pop out the curved Plexiglas back to insert a photo or keepsake.

Note: With its original tag from Lucien Piccard. Black insert is plastic and original. Ask about our small collection of lockets of this series, some in yellow gold, others in palladium. Initials B, K, J, R, & A.
