The piece is 9ct back and front, meaning the interior is not gold although the front and back of the piece is 9ct gold. The locket is very special it has two hand painted portraits with bevelled glass.

 

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.
