In the winter, when my garden is buried knee deep in snow, I love to look back at photos I've taken of those long July days, of flowers, bees and veggies flourishing in my sun-warmed beds. I feel lucky to live in the age of digital photos, I can flip through my phone and enjoy the bright colors and rich greens of those seemingly long ago summer days, but I know the Victorians had no such luxuries. They could look at a painting, I suppose, or if they were lucky, maybe they had a locket like this one, to warm their wintry hearts and give them hope for the flowers that Spring would yield.
This lovely, hand crafted, Victorian collar and locket set was made in England in May of 1881of sterling silver. The collar is 17 inches long and the locket measures 59 mm north to south including the bale and is 35.7 mm across. The locket is marked with an English registration (or ‘kite’) mark, it has two frames to hold your photos; opens easily and closes with a light snap. The collar and locket weighs 41.2 grams (the collar weighs 20 grams, the locket weighs 21.2 grams). These sets are wonderful in so many ways, they can be worn with or without the locket, with or without the extra drop, with the clasp in front or back to accommodate many different outfits, looks and necklines.
