Antique Edwardian Locket set with Turquoise, Hallmarked 1906, 9k Gold

It was the first time she met his family. He said they were welcoming and wonderful, as if anyone from the South couldn’t be. She was city, he was country. She felt out of her element in sticky hot weather with dragonflies and lightning bugs floating around in it. He gave her a present to calm her nerves, or at least take her mind off of the pressure. It was a locket with a picture of the two of them from last summer on the lake. Her new touch stone relaxed her and she had a second helping of jambalaya. She even drank the bitter moonshine with his crazy Uncle Jack, all the while laughing like she’d never laughed, all in the Southern heat.  

This darling gold and turquoise round locket was hand crafted in Birmingham, England in 1906. It features three cabochon cut turquoise stones on the front, mounted inside a maple leaf engraving. xEach stone measures 2 x 2.2 mm in diameter. Inside this golden pendant is one frame, a special place to hold a photo of that special person. This piece is fully hallmarked. It contains the letter year code, ‘g’, indicating it was made in 1906. There is an anchor, meaning the Birmingham Assay Office. It’s also marked with the number ‘9’ meaning a gold purity content of 9 karats. The inside frame is marked, ‘.375’, also meaning 9 karat gold. The maker’s mark reads, ‘W&JS’. This locket weighs 6.5 grams and measures 27 x 20 x 9 mm. 

A graduation present, a Christmas morning surprise, or something just because, giving a locket can mean everything to that person in your life.
