Sweet Memories - Victorian 9K Engraved Locket . This lovely locket is crafted from 9K gold, tested and confirmed. Featuring Victorian styling, exquisite engraving and quality gold-work. This Victorian locket is engraved on the front and back, displaying beautiful foliage, and a shield for engraving if desired. The border is also engraved, adding even more decoration and beauty to the piece. The inside of the locket is complete with its frames and glass protectors. The locket opens and closes well. These wonderful back to front lockets are constructed by using 9K gold with brass frames for additional strength and durability ( a characteristic of Victorian lockets). The pendant has been matched up to a 14K gold filled chain, which matches very well with the locket. This Victorian era piece would make a perfect gift or addition to any fine jewelry collection.
Note: Shields were often used as decoration on lockets for engraving, and was thought to protect the loved ones (photos) in the locket.
