Details

Vintage 1930s 9ct yellow gold locket featuring beautifully ornate engraved flourishes on the back and a shiny back. The locket hangs from a new 9ct yellow gold chain. The piece is 9ct 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.
