This Victorian Aesthetic Gold & Silver rectangular locket is a delight! Have you ever seen something quite like it before? We certainly haven't! Its design is reminiscent of an old book or a picture in a frame.
We love the lifelike nature scene of flowers, leaves and grass. The details are raised up and plated in Green and Rose Gold, giving the locket a sense of three-dimensional depth. It really seems like the flowers are reaching out of the frame to tease your senses!
This wonderful antique locket would make a fantastic statement on a Victorain Silver book chain, or you could add it to a simple belcher chain for a more subdued look. However you choose to wear it, you're certain to receive many compliments!

EXCELLENT: This Victorian Aesthetic rectangular locket is in remarkable condition. Most importantly, the hinge is nice and firm and the locket closes with a tight snap. The front is completely perfect, and the rear has only some tiny superficial scratches which could be easily polished out if desired. It's lovely in every way!
