Antique Diamond Locket, 18k Gold, Dated 1912, with Sweet Inscription on Back

     I love antique Edwardian diamond lockets. A century ago this locket embodied the love between a daughter and her mum on a summer day in August 1913. Sometimes I wish these pieces of jewelry could talk and tell us their tales. Who was Peggy? And who was her mum? Tell me, please, dear locket, about these people and their lives.

     Victorians loved lockets; a form whose history far exceeds that of the photographs we put in them these days.  Originally the locket was used to hold hair, ashes, relics and good luck charms, but one thing is the same, it was always meant to keep something precious close to your heart.  This one still has the locks of Peggy's blonde ringlets inside. It has a 0.15 carat mine-cut diamond, graver set within an eight-pointed star. And it is sweetly inscribed on the reverse with the sentiment;  "With Love & My Curls, To Mummy, From Peggy, Aug. 15.1913." 

     This antique Edwardian locket was hand crafted of 18 karat gold. It measures 25.7 mm in diameter and is 4 mm thick. It is marked with the Crown, '18', the Anchor (which denotes Birmingham), the letter code 'n' which denotes the year 1912, a a maker's mark of 'J H'.

     I love antique Edwardian lockets. Make this one your own!
