We have been busy planning and preparing to ensure the highest standards of safety and hygiene will be adhered to. We shall limit the number of visitors at any one one. This will help us to observe social distancing. We have installed floor stickers as guidance. We also have protective barriers at every desk and would encourage customers to pay via card where possible. All staff members have undergone Covid-19 training and a full Covid-19 policy is in place. I am really looking forward to opening on Monday 15th June and welcoming you to Walsh Bros – Yours, Richard BURROW
A very rare and unusual French Victorian turquoise and 18ct gold chain and locket. The heavy oval belcher chain has alternate turquoise enamel and gold links, finished with a screw fitted dog clip clasp. This beautiful 18ct gold oval shaped locket has an elegant rose motif set with seventeen rose cut diamonds all of different sizes and shapes, on the front. The back of the locket has a gold panel with scroll edging ready to be engraved. Inside the locket is a domed glass window, for a small keepsake. The craftsmanship of this rare and beautiful piece is of excelling standard. The turquoise colour symbolises the forget-me-not, meaning ‘remember my love for you’, with rose set in diamonds meaning love, hope and joy. This truly stunning piece of jewellery would be a beautifully unique present for a loved one.
