This is such a unique little Victorian 9ct Gold locket! The dainty and delicate enamel work on the front is so stunning!
Intricate patterns of Gold and royal blue enamel adorn the front whilst a pretty chased design of ivy leaves cover the back- symbolising an "evergreen" or everlasting love.
Hiding towards the bottom of the golden side are beautifully engraved initials, ("SH" or "SB"), pointing to its previous owner's name, or perhaps even their sweetheart? And within you'll find a lock of hair still kept safe inside!
(The hair can be removed if you wish, but we've kept it as found so you can decide whether to keep it or replace it with your own special keepsake.)
Small but fierce, this dainty locket boasts of elegance and grace. It looks gorgeous on a simple Gold chain or worn as a choker pendant tied with a blue velvet ribbon.

This Victorian 9ct Gold locket with blue enamel has been kept in a gorgeous condition. The blue enamel work on the front almost looks like it was done yesterday, with only the very lightest suggestion of wear. There are no chips in the enamel, and all of the remaining enamel is solid with no crazing or flaking. The engraving is also crisp and clear, with a beautifully bright Gold colour.
There is a tiny ding to the Gold half, but this is quite subtle and doesn't detract from the beauty of the piece. The bale is also secure and tight, ready for a necklace chain to be added, and the locket open and closes shut tighly. A beautiful little locket ready to be worn straight away!
