With both sides as beautiful as one another, this hand engraved antique photo locket is just so beautiful and shows the level of attention and detail that went into making it over a century ago. There is such a difference between modern machine engraved lockets or more commonly lockets that have been stamped out on a press compared to hand engraving such as in this locket. The level of craftsmanship is nothing short of spectacular and the hours needed to engrave this locket would have been immense. Made in 9ct yellow gold, the locket measures 22.8mm across by 28mm or 38mm to the top of the bail and will easily slide along a chain to be worn around the neck. Able to hold two photos inside, there is something so much more special and personal about wearing photos of people that you love around your neck compared to just looking at them on a phone. This really is such a lovely antique photo locket from the Victorian era, and one that will be treasured for a lifetime. Stock# ES7116 Circa: 1890 $Sold.
Nothing is more personal that a locket around your neck with photos of those dear to you inside, and here is a lovely antique sterling silver and rose gold locket made in 1883.
