Victorian Engraved Gold Locket Shield Heart

He sailed away, out to sea and into the dark green waters and the unknown beyond, and it stung his heart to see her there, on the shore, waving goodbye, no knowing but hoping it was just for now. This time though he had left her a present at home to remind her that he would never not be thinking of her.

He knew she would walk home, slowly, stopping in the market for cheeses and warm crusty breads. She would sit on her couch and reach for her book on the table where she would find a box. And in that box she would discover a locket that he bought weeks ago, waiting for just the right moment to gift it. Then he thought better.

He laughed to himself that night, picturing her running to her friend’s house to tell her all about it. He slept well knowing that he and she would never part, even with the distance.

Loaded with the romantic symbolism of the times, this Victorian shield shaped locket was handcrafted in 9 karat gold and engraved on both sides with an abundant floral motif, surrounding an elegant, elongated heart on the front. It is unmarked but has been professionally acid tested for content, testing as 9k gold, and was made in England around 1890. It weighs 4.5 grams and measures 33.6 x 19.8 x 5.6 mm.

This lovely locket would certainly make the perfect surprise gift for the one you would never be parted from!
