During the Victorian years the locket reigned as a mainstay in the personal adornment category. With the rise of the science of photography, the locket became the personal showplace for portraits of loved ones.
This large example fashioned of 15k yellow gold uses patterns, colors and flowers to enliven the oval front. Cobalt blue enamel crisscrosses the surface in raised channels.
Within each frame, a Tudor rose in relief plays against a textured background. Smooth as silk, the reverse is slightly convex and polished to a subtle matte finish. Lifting up the hinged cover reveals two compartments, their inner rims still intact. Later plastic covers can protect a photo or memento.
A hidden hinge keeps the locket pure of form and an oval second bale creates the opportunity to suspend this from a thicker chain.
