Story

During the reign of HRH Queen Victoria the most popular form of daytime jewelry was the locket. Perhaps the most sentimental of all, the locket was always worn close to the heart and its contents hidden from public view.

Small oval lockets decorated with enamel were the “in” jewel. This double box locket is a standout with cerulean blue enamel serving as the backdrop for a tableau of a pair of doves roosting and flying amongst pink and yellow roses. The locket is of enamel over silver with yellow gold over silver for the bale, edges and rims.
