Sourced straight from England, this gorgeous, rare, and large-sized Victorian English 15CT solid gold oval locket is one of our recent unusual finds.

The front of the locket features a Gothic starburst decor set with seed pearls and a genuine antique cushion cut sapphire (approx. 3.5 mm x 2.8 mm). The back is clean with no monograms, so it is perfect to add your own engravings if desired. The locket is hung on its original bale. The surface has a smooth and rich gold finish.

Opening from the side, it reveals two compartments perfect for photos, a lock of hair, or a secret love note. The locket remains in an amazing condition and it retains all its original components, including two bezels, two glass covers, and two fabric liners.
