Vintage Yellow Rose Cloisonne Locket Necklace

This is a beautiful vintage cloisonne locket with a garden scene on milk white background.  It hangs on a vintage, double stranded, brass chain, woven with brown leather that attaches a vintage bead and old charm.  The yellow rose symbolizes joy, gladness, and friendship.  The butterfly's metamorphosis from a caterpillar and emergence from it's chrysalis symbolize rebirth and resurrection.  To the Chinese and Japanese the butterfly is a sign of both immortality and joy.  In Chinese are, butterflies combined with plum blossoms symbolize long life.
