ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN FORGET ME NOT 9CT GOLD LOCKET PENDANT DATED 1907
An elegant Antique Edwardian shield shaped locket fashioned in 9ct Yellow Gold and engraved with Forget-me-nots.
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.
The locket opens and closes securely with rims and windows within for photographs to be framed, one of which currently houses a photograph of a previous owners loved one. It would look perfect on a Gold chain and is a lovely antique treasure.
