This Victorian Silver Oval locket is entrancing! The level of detail in the engraving is truly spectacular; you could spend hours staring into the patterns and swirls. We love this 'edge-to-edge' engraving style, where the pattern covers the entire front face of the locket. What a lovely piece of Victorian jewellery!
The beauty of a locket like this is that you can really make it your own. By adding some photographs you can immediately turn it into a sentimental piece of jewellery with real personal significance.
It's the perfect size for everyday wear. Large enough to be noticed but not so big it will be constantly getting in the way.

EXCELLENT: This locket really is wonderful throughout! The most important thing with antique lockets is a nice sturdy hinge that keeps the locket firmly closed when not in use.
