A Timeless Treasure - A Vintage Keepsake Locket
A locket is typically a pendant that opens to reveal a space to hold a keepsake or a photo.
Lockets have been around for centuries, but became most fashionable & affordable during the Victorian period (circa 1827 - 1901).
Lockets can be found in many shapes & sizes; most commonly as a pendant worn as a necklace but also a charm on a bracelet or even more rarely as a ring focal.
This vintage locket has been re-fashioned into a beautiful, timeless statement necklace.
It is embellished with a vintage reverse painted glass cabochon & is suspended from a vintage gingerbread brass bow stamping. Multiple vintage beaded chains make this necklace a show stopper. They consist of a double length of vintage Japanese translucent pink opal round & bamboo glass beads along with a length of clear faceted crystal rosary beads.
The locket pendant opens to reveal a nice medium size space to hold 1 or 2 photos and/or a small personal keepsake.
This necklace is the perfect example of timeless jewelry style that never goes out of fashion.
It is currently available in my on-line store. Come take a look!
