Steeped in romantic symbolism this Victorian 9ct Gold locket is the perfect sentimental love token to gift a woman in your life.
Pretty scalloped edges frame the ornately engraved details on either side of this very large antique locket, perfectly proportioned with the large bale adding to her undeniable antique decadence.
