This is an exceptional Victorian aesthetic Silver and 9ct Gold locket that would please any antique jewellery lover!
Its size is noticeable, being on the larger scale of the locket spectrum it certainly gets our attention...
The decoration is beautifully designed. Embossed delicate Rose Gold flowers and engraved leaf patterns surround a wonderfully bordered diamond design that is an excellent example of the hard and soft aesthetic of the Victorian era.
If you open up the locket you are greeted by two young portraits. Fascinatingly the woman if you look closely is wearing the very same locket! It boasts a fully hallmarked back so we know that it was made in 1881. Amazing!
Add a gorgeous antique Silver chain and bring this locket into the 21st Century with grace and pride!
