Antique Art Nouveau Round 18k Gold Locket with Rose Cut Diamonds

He had to catch the train to London, for University. And although he proposed the night of our graduation I doubted I’d ever actually see him again. It was going to be weekly letters shared and a few long distance telegrams before he faded away, into his career as a lawyer. 

I wore my burgundy pea coat on that September day, the leaves were brown and as melancholy as I was. I stood on the platform, next to him, taking in his heat, his nerves, his attention. As the train pulled up he drew something out of his pocket and began to place it around my neck. I was stunned at his gesture and my eyes welled up as I looked at the locket that now hung around my collar line. I clasped it, speechless. He simply whispered that he loved me before ascending the whistling train. 

I walked home that evening, in a happy daze, and I slept heavenly that night, realizing inside the locket was a photograph of us, taken that summer, looking happy, young, vibrant. 

This engraved locket was handcrafted in 18 karat gold around 1880. Two clover leaf insets with rose cut diamonds decorate the front. Each diamond measures 2 mm in diameter. Rich red cloth lines both inside doors of this locket. This piece weighs 5.8 grams and has been acid tested. 

This piece is the perfect gift for that lady in your life, or for your lovely self! Throw in a matching gold chain and you’re set.
