ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Evocative of a petite pendant watch, this darling Victorian locket is hand engraved on the front with graceful scrolls and other lovely designs, while the back opens to reveal a compartment just large enough to hold a very small photo of your sweetheart (as was the wont of the times, it currently holds the woven hair of someone else's sweetheart). Hand fabricated in 9K gold, hence of English origin. Circa 1890. The 16 inch chain is 10K gold.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
