These pretty antique shaker lockets were extremely popular during the Victorian and Edwardian eras in England, and it's easy to see why... They're elegant, lady-like and oh, so beautiful!
This piece was crafted with care using the finest materials available at the time; English Sterling Silver and lustrous created Pearls, and is hallmarked for the year 1903.
As you can see it has a lovely aged patina that's taken on a yellow Gold look, although we assure you the locket itself is Silver (hallmarked), and has been polished gently to restore it to its original beauty.
We have added a generous sprinkle of natural Pearls, Garnets, and Sapphires to compliment the locket, and give it it's so-called "shaker" name!
This locket may have originally contained a more sentimental item such as a photograph or a lock of hair from a loved one, and this can easily be swapped and changed as you wish.
The locket is in perfect antique condition and would make a very thoughtful and unique gift for any occasion.
The chain pictured is not included but one can be added on request or at the checkout. It looks great on Silver or Gold, so if you'd like one please get in touch!
