Antique Victorian solid 9ct yellow gold locket featuring beautifully ornate leaves carved around the locket with a domed centre on the front and the back. The inside of the locket opens to reveal an area for one picture and compartment.

 

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.

 

HALLMARKS

Tested, 9ct gold.

 

MEASUREMENTS

The locket measures 2.8cm /. 1.1" (including bail) in height and 2.3cm / 0.9" in width. The necklace hangs from a 9ct 18" yellow gold chain.
