Edwardian Sentimental Locket Necklace
STORY: Lockets are such sentimental and romantic pieces of jewellery. There is an allure to wearing a piece of jewellery which holds a secret you can carry with you wherever you go. Queen Victoria is to be credited with popularising lockets in the early 1800s. The lovestruck Queen had a locket with a tuft of Prince Albert's hair which she confessed to wearing "Day and Night".
DESCRIPTION: This locket is beautifully simple. It is made of sterling silver with a scrolling engraved "HCB" monogram across the front. It opens to reveal double photo compartments sealed by plexiglass covers - which I think were added later. This necklace is being sold with the original photos of 2 ladies wearing their very own lockets. Are they sisters? best friends? We will never really know. I am happy to remove the photos if you prefer it empty after purchase. The locket is strung from a thick cable silver 925 chain.
HOW TO WEAR: This locket is perfect to be worn on its own or with your other favourites.
Condition: Excellent condition - There are very little scratches on the locket although this is to be expected given its age. They are really only noticeable if you are looking for them. No scratching to the plexiglass covers
