Antique Victorian 9ct gold locket featuring beautiful ornate engravings on the front and back of the piece, with a beaded border running around the locket. The inside of the locket has two compartments where pictures can be stored. The piece is 9ct gold back and front, meaning the interior is not gold although the front and back of the piece are 9ct gold.

 

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.
