Scrolls & Ivy - Victorian 9K Rose Gold Engraved Locket. This wonderful locket is crafted from 9K rose gold, tested and confirmed. This is a back & front locket, crafted from 9K and some metal parts for strength and durability (a characteristic of Victorian and Edwardian lockets). Featuring exquisite detail, Victorian styling and quality gold-work. The work on this locket is absolutely beautiful. The central front portion of the locket showcases deep engraved scrolls and a shield for engraving, if desired. The border is polished with a lovely smooth feel. The back of the locket features exquisite deep engraving of ivy. The inside of the locket is in fabulous condition lined with deep purple silky fabric liners, both frames, and plastic protectors. The locket has a small lip for opening, it is suggested that you use your fingernail to open the locket (no tools) to avoid scratching the locket. The locket snaps closed, however there is a trick to closing this locket. Lockets should never be closed in the centre of the piece, always on the edge of the locket. However this only closes above the lip on the borders edge by holding one finger on the back and one on the front and applying pressure. You will hear the locket snap, it closes tightly and securely. The bale is simple and solid, strong enough for suspending the large locket. The locket has been matched up to 14K rose gold filled chain, which looks perfect with the pendant. This Victorian era locket is a very special piece to be cherished and enjoyed for many years to come.
Note: In history of the United Kingdom, the Victorian era was the period of Queen Victoria's reign from June the 20th 1837 until her death on the 22nd of January 1901.
