An exceptional, fine and impressive 14 carat yellow gold locket with a 17 carat yellow gold chain; part of our diverse antique jewellery and estate jewelry collections

SKU C6585

This exceptional, fine and impressive antique locket has been crafted in 14ct yellow gold.

The exceptional yellow gold locket has an oval form, embellished with impressive embossed and chased Burmese style decoration to the domed anterior and posterior covers.

The ornamentation to the anterior surface depicts the figure of Krishna* playing the flute, positioned next to a calf, and surrounded by intricate floral motifs.

The posterior face of the locket bears the figure of Saraswati** playing a Saraswati veena, with a swan in the foreground of the image and floral motifs encircling the figure.

The yellow gold border of the locket is plain and unembellished.

This hinged locket opens to reveal two windows, allowing for a personal memento to be stored within.

The pendant suspends from a 1920s 17ct yellow gold 26" belcher chain via a ring loop to the upper border of the frame.

The chain secures with a conventional spring-loaded bolt ring fastening.

The exceptional antique locket is hallmarked to the lower border of each cover with the 14ct gold fineness mark (585), the importer's mark (RES) and the London import mark date letter for 1979 (E).

This large antique gold locket has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 14ct and 17ct gold.

NOTES: * Krishna is one of the most widely revered of all the Indian deities, often depicted with a calf, or playing the flute amongst cows. Krishna is the god of protection, compassion, tenderness and love.

** Saraswati is a Hindu goddess associated with education, creativity and music. She is often depicted riding upon a sacred swan, believed to symbolise power and morality.

This large antique gold locket is exceptional quality, embellished with sharp decoration.

The pendant is an exceptional gauge of gold and is in exceptional condition, with clear hallmarks to the lower border of each cover.
