Sold

28M
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

A pretty heart shaped pendant with a locket section on the reverse containing a lock of hair with gold thread around it. It is a mixture of 9ct and 15ct gold. The front is turquoise blue enamel with a natural split pearl cluster with a tiny ruby in the centre, that represents a “forget me not” flower. The colour of the enamel underlines the “Forget me not” theme. So it was most likely a mourning piece of jewellery that was made circa 1860-1880.
