Victorian Hazelnut Locket in Original Box


The Ancient Celts associated the hazelnut with wisdom. To the Medieval mind, the nut with its three distinct parts - the husk, shell, and meat - was a symbol of the Holy Trinity. And in the modern day, to Oregonians such as us, it is the state nut of Oregon which grows 99% of the US hazelnut crop each year. This wonderful Victorian hazelnut locket is beautifully detailed and set with a single old European cut diamond. Comes in its original heart-shaped box.
