Victorian Banded Agate High Domed Crystal Locket 18k Gold

On their first date, they rode out into the country for a picnic. It was a somewhat formal affair, there were friends and chaperones. The picnic had been laid out when they arrived, and there were cheese and cured meats and crusty bread along with fruit and pickles and sweets, little meat pies and small iced cakes shaded from the sun. There was champagne and they drank and laughed and she found him a four leaf clover amongst the grasses. She opened the small notebook he’d brought along and placed the leaf between the pages. ‘For luck’, she told him.

On their third date he took her to a restaurant, it was just the two of them this time. When the waiter arrived with champagne, he placed a small tooled leather box next to her glass. She opened the boxed and drew in her breath. Inside was the most exquisite rock crystal locket, its edge was set in gold and studded with banded agates and under the thick crystal dome was the four leaf clover, magnified larger than life. She took the pendant from the box and he stood and came around the table to put it on her. When he clasped in the back he leaned close to her ear and whispered, ‘you’re my luck’.
