    Description
    Queen Victoria wore lockets for many purposes - to mourn her beloved husband, Albert, but also to remember and celebrate friends. Whatever she did trickled down and by the time this locket was made, lockets were the height of jewelry fashion. The idea that a heart represents the love between two people dates back centuries and still continues today. Lockets would usually be worn under clothing, close to the heart. If any one piece of jewelry is symbolic of sentimental jewelry representing the Victorian era, the locket has to win hands down. Whether worn as a token of love or worn in memory of a lost loved one, a locket could represent every milestone from birth to death. A locket's secret compartment could hold cherished photos, messages or locks of hair from a loved one.

    Here is a lovely locket from the Victoria era in14kt yellow gold with an etched 8-point starburst design on the front with a single gorgeous opal set within. The locket opens to reveal 2 empty spots for photographs. The back of the locket is engraved Glady's in a lovely script. It shows wear consistent with age.

    Please note this charm is sold without a chain. If you'd like it on one of our chains, please select one in the drop down and we will assemble it for you. If you'd like to see full length shots of the various chain styles, head over here.

    If you'd like to layer it on your own necklace at home, that may or may not require a jeweler to solder it (it all depends on the size of the bail + the clasp on your personal chain). In an effort to streamline things and save everyone time and money on shipping, if you need it professionally assembled on your personal jewelry, we politely decline that service and recommend taking it to a local jeweler. We're happy to give our input on how they should assemble if needed.

     

    Notes About This Collection

    The entirety of the Heritage by Ariel Gordon Collection has been inspected by a 3rd generation, GIA-certified Estate Jewelry dealer so we feel confident about the pieces that we are passing on to you. Every piece here has survived generations and we are so excited that they are finding a new home with you. Please keep in mind that these heirlooms are sold as-is and will show wear consistent with their age. We believe that this wear isn't a defect, rather it's proof that the piece was worn with love in generations past. We will describe any notable wear or damage as accurately as possible and to the best of our ability. We are only selling pieces that we've determined are in wearable condition. That being said, please know that jewelry in general is fragile, especially antique jewelry and should be handled with extra care. We will assess all repair requests on Heritage pieces on a case by case basis. 

    We know that shopping online for estate pieces can be intimidating, which is why we will accept returns on our Heritage pieces (with limited terms).  Due to the one-of-a kind nature of these pieces, you can return it within 5 days of receipt of the item with a $25 restocking fee.

    If you're unsure about anything, please reach out to us via our concierge portal with any specific questions about this item.
