Even the inside of the cartouche half is beautiful, a hidden secret for just for the wearer! A fantastic piece of antique jewellery bound to bring joy to whoever becomes her next owner

EXCELLENT: A Victorian Gold locket in fantastic antique condition, hard to believe it was created over a century ago! The engravings and writing are all clear and free from any signs of wear. There are some signs of wear to the body in keeping with age but these are barely noticeable and in no way distracts from the locket. The lock shuts with a "click" giving you the peace of mind that the contents are kept safely hidden from the outside world!
