A beautiful antique Victorian with a lovely tactile quality. The locket is crafted from a little square of old 18ct yellow gold in the shape of a book. The locket has curved edges. It is inlaid on one side with dark red cornelian and to the other side with an applied gold horseshoe decoration. The locket opens and has a recess to each half to hold a photograph, lock of hair or even a small love-letter!
It is hinged on one edge and has a chain loop to the top for adding to a necklace. The locket would make a perfect gift for any special occasion from celebrating a birth to a marriage.
