Details

 

Our antique Victorian locket is ornate on the front and back, set in 9ct rose gold. This oval locket opens to reveal two areas pictures could be placed. The locket hangs from a new 9ct gold chain.


The locket is 9ct gold back and front, meaning the interior is not gold although the front and back of the piece are 9ct gold. Often lockets are made with brass interiors for strength for the moving parts. The locket hangs from a new 9ct gold chain. 

 

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.
