This is a precious little French antique silver locket from the Belle Époque era; at least 100 years of age.

It is from France and the silver mark, although very tiny, looks through a loupe to be a single crown meaning it is made in Paris. The locket had engraved oval rings with tiny dimpled rings between the lines.

Given the depth of the locket this was never a photo locket and would have been used to carry personal treasures and love tokens. In this light, I have included a little set of charms, delicate and precious.

Sitting on square of antique embroidered linen is a tiny ring holding a sterling silver vintage heart, a copper angel wing and and a Ceylonese almandine garnet oval set into sterling silver.

Size: oval in shape and from the bottom to the top of the connecting bail is 1.25 x .8 x .2 inches deep (32mm, 20mm across and 5mm deep).

Condition: worn smooth and lovely to handle, small dings commensurate with age (visible in photos) and adding to the locket's beauty, very nice patina. The hinge is perfect and the locket closes securely with a satisfying click.

The locket came to me without a chain and I've added an excellent quality welded dark bronze Belcher chain12mm wide and 28 inches or 720mm long - this can be easily slipped over the head without a catch.

This is a one of a kind necklace - the vintage parts ensure that it can not be repeated. Designed and handmade in New Zealand by Janne Perry of ClosetGothic, the necklace will be delivered to the buyer in a handmade ClosetGothic black felt envelope.
