Truly magnificent Georgian gold love pendant with forget-me-nots and roses

Look what we found! A truly magnificent Georgian (the era before the Victorian period) gold love pendant with forget-me-nots and roses in the shape of a book. Inside there is a compartment where still a lock of hair is kept. On the outside of the locket on both sides we see a little bouquet of flowers, roses and forget-me-nots and when looking close we can even recognize a little butterfly.
