A beautiful Victorian Silver locket with the most stunning embossed floral design.
We love the three-dimensional effect of the embossed patterns creating a lively play of light as it runs over the varying surface textures. Embossed patterns are created by hammering a range of shaped steel tools into the reverse of a piece of sheet metal. With an array of perfectly formed and proportioned floral patterns, one can only admire the craftsmanship that went into creating this piece.
This Victorian Silver locket is steeped in antique symbolism, with a stylised thistle in its centre representing nobility and graciousness and the surrounding flowers representing everlasting love and purity. The perfect Victorian love token to give the one you love!
