A Regency Gold Heart Locket Pendant

Description

A Regency gold heart locket pendant, at one side depicting a Cupid playing a harp, surrounded by fruiting vines and shamrocks, on the other bearing the word “amitie” meaning friendship, with a locket compartment containing hair, pendant suspending from a stylized butterfly pendant loop, circa 1815, measuring approximately 3x2cm, gross weight 9.6 grams.

A wonderfully expressive and detailed locket. This locket was created at the peak of Jane Austen’s writing career: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma were all published around the time that this pendant was crafted. The front of the locket features a detailed and lovely design of crawling vines surrounding the figure of cupid, and on the back is the Latin word Amitie, meaning friendship. In the locket are two locks of hair, one blonde and one brunette, arranged beautifully using regency-era hairwork techniques. This locket is a sweet and sentimental token of friendship and is a marvellous example of regency-era jewellery meant to symbolize everlasting love.
