Victorian Sterling Silver Banded Agate Locket

$1,500

About

An unusual combination of silver and banded agate make this example of English locket lean toward the bold side. There was a silver revolution in England between 1860-1880 when Queen Victorian gifted silver and wore it herself after years and years of donning only black in mourning for her husband. The large banded agate is haunting and the contrast between it with the simplicity of the silver is exquisite. The Victorians believed banded agate promotes beauty, harmony and fertility. From the earth and cut and polished by stone cutters who situate the bands central for that balance and appeal. Two frames remain inside for memorabilia that feels good for you to keep close. Exctraordinary condition. Height 2 3/8 in Width 1 1/4 in.
