Details

Antique Victorian 9ct gold locket featuring delicate etching on the front and back. The front of the locket is decorated with turquoise enamel and opens to reveal two compartments for a photograph or keepsake. One side of the locket has the original hair.

Lockets were considered a statement of an intention to marry.
