This exquisite antique Victorian scallop shape locket was crafted from 12k gold. It has a classic Etruscan Revival design which strives to reclaim the glory of the ancient Italians. It is very old (over 100 years old) and very gorgeous.

The uniquely shaped construction exhibits intricate metal work and has a floral center decor highlighted with seven seed pearls on the front. Opening from the back, it reveals one compartment to store your photo, a lock of hair, or a love note! So precious! It still retains two original old photos, truly indicating the age and history this piece has gone through.

*The listing is for the locket only. The antique watch chain shown in the model picture is available through a different listing. If you need a chain, I would be happy to provide a 18" gold filled chain at no cost. The chain style varies depending on what is available in my inventory. Please send me a note at or before your checkout.

Size: It measures about 1 & 7/16" long (excluding jump ring) and 15/16" in width (at the widest point).

Locket weight: 7.7 grams.

Metal: 12K solid gold (unmarked but professionally tested).

Circa 1880s.

Condition: very good antique condition with age appropriate tarnish and wear. No bezel ring. Small crease on the back cover. The jump ring appears to be a replacement and is gold filled. The hinge and closure are in a good working condition. Please refer to all the listing pictures for the general condition.

This is both a precious and a sentimental piece of Victorian jewelry you should not miss out on!
