Gold heart locket

VintageRachel ChurchComment

This is such a precious little locket!  As I mentioned the other day, lockets have been around for centuries. Heart shaped lockets became very popular in the Victorian Era when they were given as condolences for those who had lost loved ones.  As time passed, they were more widely given as gifts and keepsakes.  Many lockets eventually became monogrammed with the initials of their owners.  This tiny heart shaped locket is beautifully romantic and traditional.  Its classic style and delicate look make it wonderful for so many reasons.  The front face has lovely engraving details on it and the heart opens up from the bottom, not from the side.  Check it out in the Etsy shop today!
