Victorian Silver Locket

£520.00

A Victorian sterling silver star-studded locket and collar featuring an ivy leaf pattern. The chain is slightly longer than average and features a unique double bolt ring clasp. There is a larger jumping offset to one side allowing for easier fastening. We rarely see a locket the same and they are nearly always unique thanks to being hand engraved.
