This gorgeous oval Victorian Aesthetic Silver engraved locket is a wonderful example of the romantic style and skillset from the Victorian era.
It is a two sides locket, practically two for the price of one as you can switch the front face depending on your preference and mood.
One side there is a beautifully engraved bird sat atop a branch, the other side has a wonderful intricate leaf motif. Both have a bold, embossed border which is typical of the era.
Wear this lovely antique locket with pride!

EXCELLENT: This gorgeous Victorian Aesthetic Silver locket is in very good condition. The Sterling Silver has aged wonderfully, with only light wear... really incredible for an item over 130 years old! Both back and front have been beautifully hand-engraved, and is still very clear and precise.
The locket opens and closes shut tight and has two original Silver frames inside, ready for you to add a portrait of your loved one. The bale also has a few light dings and is ever-so-slightly twisted, but this is quite subtle and hangs straight when worn. This locket is a wonderful historical gem that we simply adore and will stand up well to daily wear.
