Victorian Glass Heart Locket


The appeal of a locket is that the wearer can keep a memento close to their heart. Literally. A heart-shaped locket worn next to the heart surely amplifies that sentimentality. This late Victorian locket features convex heart-shaped glass panels in base metal fittings and can hold a photo, lock of hair, or scrap of a love letter inside the two glass lenses.
