A striking Victorian locket in rich 18ct yellow gold, detailed to the front with intricate swirls of black enamel that encircle a central monogrammed plaque, which reads ‘J.M.M.’. The enamel is overall in good condition with only light wear to note.
To the reverse there is a locket back which carefully holds a lock of brown hair tied with an olive-green thread. Beautifully sentimental this is clearly a mourning piece, commissioned to commemorate a dear loved one’s passing. Although the hair can easily be removed we chose to leave this decision up to the future owner and preserve the history of this striking piece.
