ANTIQUE VICTORIAN BUCKLE FORGET ME NOT LOCKET 9CT GOLD CIRCA 1900
This fascinating Antique Victorian locket has been modelled out of solid 9ct Yellow Gold. It features beautiful engravings of two buckles and forget-me-nots on the front, with foliate style engravings on the back.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
An impressive and interesting piece with a lovely history and sentiment.
