Antique Victorian locket set in sterling silver. The locket has a plain back with beautiful ornate flourishes on the front. The piece has a number of marks indicating the piece was hallmarked in 1859 and it is set in sterling silver. On the inside of the piece there are two compartments where two large pictures could be held.

 

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.
