A really beautiful and quite large 15ct gold heart shaped locket that was made circa 1820. It has a “forget me not flower” in the centre set with five turquoise and a ruby. This sent a clear message to the recipient. Around the forget me not is highly detailed applied floral gold wire work and on the bale. The bale or loop has also been set with a turquoise. The background is a fine studded design. It opens to reveal a locket section which would have originally held a lock of hair.
