Details

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.

Lockets were considered a statement of an intention to marry.
