A late 19th century book locket with Victorian maximalist flair. Modeled in gold, the face of the locket features the word "Remember" in ambling script, a meandering bow and a pink rose all rendered in enamel. One rose cut diamond punctuates the bow and another sparkles all on its own in the lower right corner because more is more, right?
