A magnificent example of antique jewellery, this Victorian Aesthetic locket is wonderfully whimsical and offered in pristine condition!
Each side boasts its own unique pattern, which way round will you wear it today? On one side two forget-me-nots sit in its centre with leaves leading your gaze out towards a display of circles layered on top of a belt. On the other an array of Datura flowers and leaves dance across the curved surface, with a sweet forget-me-not placed beneath the blank cartouche eagerly awaiting your personal touch! All finished off by a fancy bale with its own unique engraving on each side, perfect!
The attention to detail is next to none with not a single millimetre of the locket's surface going unengraved. A fantastic piece of antique jewellery steeped in Victorian symbolism and romantic sentiment, ready to be gifted to the woman you love!

EXCELLENT: A marvellous Victorian Aesthetic locket in outstanding condition!
