Antique Victorian Gold Silver Locket, circa 1880


This fabulous Sterling Silver and Gold large locket is genuine Victorian, Circa 1880. The front of the locket displays fabulous Gold workmanship in 18ct Yellow Gold and 18ct Rose Gold. Forget-me-nots are seen on the front of the locket. Forget-me-not, O Lord is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river.  He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time, no doubt enjoying the beautiful day around them, and yet as fate would have it, the knight's armour dragged him down to the bottom as he fell in.  Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one and promptly drowned. This little tale reportedly dates to around the 15th century, but no doubt had different permeations along the way, as romantic stories often do. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this. The locket is hallmarked on the reverse, the letter is a little worn so hard to be exact on the actual date, however this is Circa 1880. The locket has developed a lovely smoothness with age. Original rims are in place and Pink material inside. Steeped in English history, ideal for a special occasion. It weighs 12.4 grams. The locket measures 31mm across x 55mm down, including loop. Excellent condition all round.
