A very pretty 9ct gold back and front heart shaped locket that was made circa 1910. The term “9ct Back & Front” and silver setting means that the paste is set in silver, the front and back are 9ct gold and the inner frames and hinges are metal. It has a swallow with a branch of flowers on one side set with three garnets and white paste. The outside design is unusual as it is scalloped. It opens to reveal two areas for photographs. The swallow was considered daring, risk-seeking, and a symbol of change for good in the future. It also meant “Everlasting love” and “loyalty” as swallows mate for life. What a lovely sentiment to pass on to someone that you love
