Victorian Sentiment - Victorian 9K Gold Engraved Glass Locket. This very special locket is crafted from 9K rose and yellow gold, tested and confirmed. Featuring exquisite detail, Victorian styling and quality gold-work. The work on this locket is absolutely beautiful. The central front portion of the locket is crafted from yellow gold, showcasing engraved ivy and a shield for engraving, if desired. The rose gold portion is framed by a rich yellow gold detailed frame and chased border. The border exhibits wonderful deeply carved scrolls. The back of the locket also features the lovely chased scroll border with a central removable glass locket. The glass portion can be removed at the edge of the frame and gently pushed back in by putting pressure on the frame (not the glass) until it is fitted back in place. The bale is beautifully engraved with a wonderful decorative attachment. The locket has been matched up to 14K yellow gold filled chain, which looks perfect with the pendant.
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.
Comments: Ivy represents friendship and the shield represents protection for the photo of that special someone in your locket. A wonderful unique Victorian example.
