Antiques and Jewelry By The Sea. Vtg Victorian 18k Gold Calla Lily Mourning Hair Locket Pendant 1877 Heavy Ornate. Details & Condition: This is one fabulous vintage Victorian mourning locket in person, it has been stored for many years in a deposit box as a result the condition is excellent for an item that is just over 140 years old. Made out of 18k gold this piece is just exquisite in person, on the front it has an applied leaves wreath, the attention to detail is something you do not see everyday, the leaves are decorates and even the branch has a pattern on it! The Calla lily in the center is also hand made and applied, the center trumpet only is actually made out of silver they did not have white gold in 1877! The outside leaves are 18k gold just like the rest of the piece. The hinges when you open it are still nice and tight, it does not flop open or closed. On the interior it still has the original protective glass that is not cracked or chipped in any way – we did not remove it as we did not want to damage it! The back features a personal inscription which reads “From George and Annie To Nettie April 1877″ We have hunted high and low for a mark but could not find one anywhere, we have Xray / Xrf tested this piece and had it tested by a GIA jeweler and it is guaranteed 18k gold.
