• A stunning antique enamelled locket from the mid-1800s. Likely a mourning piece the heart shaped locket is detailed with deep black enamel for loss and a central seed pearl, often used to symbolise tears and purity. To the interior of the locket there is the original glass that houses a delicate lock of blonde hair, likely that of a lost loved one held in great esteem by the original owner. The pretty locket is complete with a box that holds it securely onto the fixed antique chain.


    The piece is in good overall condition with pristine enamel work to the front of the locket. Light wear to note would be a few kinks to the chain, and dents to barrel clasp and to the hinge of the locket, as well as age related tarnishing to the interior. However, none of this damage does anything to detract from the beauty of this important mourning piece.


    If the chain is too short please let us know and we can arrange a vintage replacement chain to be added in place.
