Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A completely engraved locket in which the back front are identical. The floral design is centered with an example of the whimsy of Victorian jewelry. In an age where bracelets were made in the form of a laced girdle, our locket is engraved with a partially open zipper. The zipper was made in1851 but was not generally used until the early 20th century. Both geometric and curvaceous design elements separate the engraved patterns with the zipper raised from the background. Made in 15kt gold, with two inner sections for photographs.
