Antique Victorian Locket - Bookchain necklace - 1880s Secret keeper - Estate Jewelry large locket - photo holder - Victorian jewelry
This is a gorgeous antique locket that is dome and quite large. Ready to keep all your secrets close to your heart, it hangs from a heavy fancy bookchain necklace that is a perfect fit for it . It measures 18" long . Just look at the detail on these double sided fleur de lis raised relief links on this antique bookchain necklace. The metals are rose and yellow gold plate and each of the links is made of one piece of metal that is folded over to form the link and give the design to both sides. The locket is a large one with so much work on it that it looks like a victorian picture frame. There are tiny golden balls on the sides and a fancy fan work design on the bottom and top. This gorgeous locket has the hinge is at the bottom. It stays tight when closed and can hold a photo that is about 1" long. This is a FABULOUS old necklace that gives you an idea of what was worn in Victorian times. Gentle wear to the coloring of chain and the back of the locket, but other than that it is in very good vintage condition. Bookchains are very hard to get anymore, much less one with such an amazing ornate locket! This locket has a strong clasp and hinge and has no dings or dents. Lots of beautiful patina on this. It has not been polished in order to keep its original patina. Sold as found. This is not solid gold.

Because these are vintage estate pieces and are vintage and possibly pre-worn so they are not considered new from the factory….. Please see photos for any wear or light surface scratches that come with age.?………………. Sold as is and priced accordingly.. All jewelry ( unless otherwise specified) is considered costume jewelry. We don’t polish these previously owned well loved pieces so we can keep the original patina. We try and photograph all of the pieces next to a ruler so you can see the actual size. All jewelry sold as found.
We use the descriptions of any stones from the manufacturers titles when they were first produced. When we refer to the stones, we are using how the original manufacturer of the pieces used them. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of a stone in a costume piece of jewelry. All pieces have been worn at least one time unless otherwise specified. Although the pieces we carry are unique and interesting they may have a little wear ( if any) but they sure have a lot of love that came with them when they were first purchased way back when.
Just click on our photos for more close ups to help you see all the cool detail on each piece.
I will be happy to combine shipping if you purchase from both.
