A fabulous collectible Antique Keepsake Necklace, with a swivel, you can turn the Locket around from the White Roses on the front to the locket back. These swivel pieces were worn with a portrait or a lock of hair or other sentimental memento on the reverse. This oval swivel is a good example of a late Victorian jewel, made of pinchbeck.

Quite a beautiful piece, the border around the white roses features fleur de lis, half moons, hearts and crossbars to form an elegant decoration. The hanging Rose branch in the center is most likely made of repousse metal, it has a silvery opalescent glow, like mother of pearl, and the reverse holds a snippet of a hand written French letter {perhaps written by a love, or a brother lost long ago?} and a small lock of auburn hair tied with a cream ribbon. Both sides have the original glass covers.

So unusual, the original pin and C clasp were removed long ago. There is wear to the gold as shown. Chain is interspersed with little freshwater pearls and cut crystal beads. A fabulous Victorian treasure, to add to your luxury collection of antique jewelry
