Antique Victorian silver oval locket featuring etched Ivy leaf engravings. In the Victorian era the Ivy leaf symbolised love, affection, fidelity, friendship and affection. Within the locket there are two small windows which allow you to place a picture, lock of hair or a thin momento would be able to fit into the locket.


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.
