By far and away one of the most unique and striking lockets we have in our collection, this Victorian Silver locket is absolutely stunning when you see it in person!
If you're at all familiar with Victorian jewellery you'll know that Victorian Aesthetic lockets are extremely popular today, and collectors the world wide love the combination of beauty and practicality found in this kind of jewellery. It was sturdy and build to last, but at the same time decorated with some of the most beautiful textures and motifs.
As you can see this one has a bar of plain polished Silver than runs through its center, embellished with five quirky, Punk-like "studs" and wire-work. And (our favourite part!) the swirling, scroll-like engravings either side remind us of deeply decadent brocade, the heavy velvet curtains and languishing embroidered damasks of this romantic era.
This beautiful antique locket is in superb antique condition, and would make a wonderful gift for anyone- from the seasoned collector to the novice antique fan!
It's a great size. Big enough to make a statement but not to large or cumbersome. It fits two large photographs easily, and is sturdy enough for daily wear. The chain pictured is not included but one can be added at the checkout or on request.

This unique and beautiful Victorian Silver locket is in exemplary condition! Circa 1880, it's stood the test of time, and continues to be a sturdy and practical locket for everyday wear. It opens and closes shut tight with a good "click", and has two original Silver frames inside. Both the back and front are as near to perfect as no could expect, with no dents, dings, pin-holes or scratches. As with most antiques it does have a little light wear in the form of the lightest brush-marks across the surface of the Silver, and this has given it a beautiful soft lustre. The bale is original and is good and strong, and the beautiful engravings and "studs" are pristine.
Due to the weight of the locket you'll need to make sure you choose a strong and durable chain such as a heavyweight belcher so you can wear it with pride all day!
