Antique Silver Art Nouveau Locket with Paste Gem

Lockets shouldn’t be overlooked. Your mother wore one, and her mother wore one, too, quite possibly so did hers. They can be filled with photos, with locks of hair, baby’s first curl. They can be filled with the four leaf clovers you found on your fist picnic together in the park or with tiny flowers from your wedding bouquet. And even if you can’t see it, a locket given from the heart will always hold one thing, your love. 

This wonderful Art Nouveau locket had such lovely lines that I didn’t even try to resist bringing it home with me. It is the perfect, wearable size, not too big, not too small. It has a subtle but unmistakable Nouveau pattern on the front and is set with a sparkling paste gem, it has both it’s frames on the inside, opens easily and closes securely with a satisfying little ‘click’. The locket measures 36.2 mm north to south including the bale and 23.7 mm across, it’s 5.5 mm thick. There are some marks on the bale that are a bit too worn for me to make out, I believe they are French marks. There is a small scratch on the outside of the back of the locket. This locket weighs 4.5 grams. 

This beautiful locket make an excellent gift for someone you love, even if that someone is yourself!
