VICTORIAN

Antique Late Victorian Large Oval Bird Japonesque Locket Necklace

£310.00 GBP

The Locket is perhaps the most mysterious and alluring pieces of jewellery. Only the wearer knows what secrets lie within the locket. It has to be the ultimate love token. During the Victorian era, young Victorian women would hide a picture of a man they admired, if the man offered up a lock of hair a marriage proposal usually would follow. Lockets were considered a statement of an intention to marry.


This stunning Victorian locket is set in silver. The locket has a wonderful engraving on the front of the locket depicting a bird sitting on bamboo branch. The design of this brooch was inspired by Japanese design. This large locket hangs from a heavy faceted Victorian silver chain.


In the late Victorian era (1880-1901) the jewellery was inspired by naturalistic themes such as birds, leaves and sometimes Japanese elements such as bamboo.
