ANTIQUE VICTORIAN FORGET ME NOT HEART LOCKET 9CT GOLD CIRCA 1900
This gorgeous Antique Victorian locket has been commissioned in 9ct Yellow Gold front and back. It features engravings of forget me not flowers all over and also the depiction of an empty shield on the front which could house initials or a date.
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.
A beautiful locket which will look fabulous on a gold chain and has a lovely sentiment attached. It comes with two internal windows which each have a gold rim to house photographs.
