Edwardian 9ct Gold Back & Front Round Locket with Swallow Motif

Sold

309H

A really pretty Edwardian round 9ct back and front locket with a charming paste set swallow holding a sprig of turquoise flowers. In ancient Greece, the swallow was associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of Love, and was believed to bring good luck and happiness. The turquoise set in the flowers means “forget me not” after the flower.
