Description

Antique fully hallmarked gold lockets are very hard to find  particularly in this condition!!  The English hallmark system guarantees this example is 105 years old (date authenticated).

This is an Antique 'George V' locket of popular proportions, a most  ‘eye catching’ item of antique jewellery (see 5 pence in inset picture for size comparisons).

This ROUND locket has pretty foliate flower engraving to the front, at the centre is a vacant shield shaped cartouche. The locket has plain surfaced sloping away edges and there's a gold top holding ring having an inner diameter of 4.0 mm.

The reverse of the locket is engraved throughout apart for the full hallmarks for 9ct Birmingham 1913 at the base and maker's mark A.E.J.'

9.375 for 9ct gold standard, Anchor logo for Birmingham assay office and low case date letter  'o' for 1913. Maker's mark is 'A.E.J'

Fully date authenticated locket of 105 years old

This locket is that lovely mellow rose gold found in jewellery items from the years bordering the turning of the 19th/20th century (not today's brash pink rose gold).

**Please note that any markings on this locket are due to reflection rather than a blemish or discolouration of the gold surface**

It will offer the new owner many more years safeguarding your most treasured keepsake or photographs. The hinge is sound and firm, the locket opens easily and shuts well with a reassuring “click”. Inside the locket has watered silk insets and Perspex covers, there is a 9ct gold retaining rims to the right side. The locket is firm with no buckle effect at all when pressed.
