These beautiful "shaker-style" lockets were extremely popular during the Victorian and Edwardian eras in England, and it's easy to see why... It's dainty, lady-like and oh, so wearable!
This piece was crafted with care using the finest materials available at the time; English Sterling Silver and twinkling paste gemstones, and is hallmarked for the year 1903.
As you can see it has a very pretty aged patina that's taken on a yellow Gold look, although we assure you the locket itself is Silver (fully hallmarked), and has been polished gently to restore it to it's original beauty.
We have added a new 18" solid 9ct Yellow Gold chain to compliment it perfectly as well as a generous sprinkle of natural rough Diamonds.
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.

This unique pendant is in exceptional condition, especially given its age! The paste stones are all bright, white and sparkly. The silver has a pale golden tone to it and is nice and shiny too. The hallmarks have started to rub away as you can see in the photographs, which is the only real sign of age on this lovely locket!
The glass panels are both in perfect condition with no scratches or chips to be seen.
An excellent antique find that will add a bunch of sparkle to any outfit!
