A striking round 15ct yellow gold, rose cut diamond (0.14ct) and brilliant ruby (0.30ct) set locket from the Belle Époque period. A beautiful flowing ribbon design has been engraved into the front section and has been expertly set with rose cut diamonds that sparkle softly in the light. Two brilliant cut rich red rubies define this motif and perfectly complement the rich yellow gold setting. Two partially pierced corner panels showcase elaborately engraved shamrock leaves with curling tendrils to add interest and complete the design. The graceful and feminine lines of ribbons are often seen in jewellery from this period, with the bow itself symbolising love, loyalty and beauty. The combination of diamonds with rubies is also symbolic, as historically the diamond signified love and prosperity, while the ruby represented passion and devotion: a sentiment that still rings true today. The shamrock panels are also hugely symbolic, with the iconic three leaves representing faith, hope and love.
As wearable today as it was a hundred years ago, its internal antique mirrored compartment is perfect for checking your lipstick or eye liner.
