This charming antique gold plated oval locket has 2 photos of adorable Victorian girls nestling inside.
It is decorated on both sides with shell and ivy motifs framing a laurel wreath, to the Victorians the ivy symbolised affectionate attachment and the laurel eternity.
The locket opens from the side and shuts with a solid snap. There is a fixed picture frame and a removable frame inside along with the 2 black and white photos. The locket is nice and puffy and fairly deep inside so it has room for other tiny keepsakes as well as photos if you wanted to replace the pictures inside.
We have added a complimentary 16" (42cm) gold filled belcher chain so this lovely antique Victorian locket is ready to wear right out of the box!
