Details

Antique Victorian 9ct yellow gold locket featuring beautifully ornate leaves set with seed pearls and turquoise gemstones set into a silver setting. The silver setting is set on a 9ct gold heart shaped locket, which opens to reveal two areas for pictures.

 

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 is 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.
