A stunning Victorian aesthetic locket inspired by Japanese art.
This locket is one of the most unique Victorian lockets we've ever seen, featuring a beautifully hand-engraved pagoda in its centre. The attention to detail is truly stunning, with an array of contrasting surface textures and patterns creating a visually magnificent piece of antique jewellery. The curled tail feathers on the exotic bird are absolutely charming! She's then finished off with beaded edging, typical of the Victorian era.
With framed space for two photographs, or even a photo and a lock of hair, this Victorian aesthetic locket would make the perfect personalised gift. She's the ultimate everyday accessory for women who love unique jewellery and would sit very proudly on her chest.

EXCELLENT: A Victorian aesthetic locket in fantastic antique condition! The engravings are immaculate an clear and just as beautiful today as when it was first created almost 150 years ago! The locking mechanism shuts with a satisfying "click" so you know it's safely shut all day long. There are some minor signs of wear to the back, but this is not noticeable when the locket is being worn and only to be expected from a piece of antique jewellery of this age. All in all a great piece of antique jewellery longing to be worn for years to come!
