Story

Enamel work remains a favorite at The Three Graces. Just the art itself takes inordinate skill developed over time, and precision within a medium that is often unpredictable and finicky.

Probably the most astounding hand engraved and enamel locket to come up for sale by us, this double-sided locket pendant has no equal.

Created with the technique of basse taille enamel, many examples of which can be rather prosaic, is instead a standard for other enamels to be measured against.

Precise engraving, inventive design, and mellifluous symmetry, the flora was left raised as the positive imagery worked in 18k gold. Between was laid coal black, opaque enamel for the background.

The tableau is one that that encompasses a central flower, swags, leaves, scrolls and at the edges, more flowers portrayed from the side.

Resembling a pocket watch, when the top button is depressed, the locket opens to reveal one inner compartment covered with glass. Thin in profile, it leaves one a bit in awe of what jewelers accomplished long ago.
