A classic antique Victorian locket and collar beautifully preserved from the late 19th Century. The book-link collar is fashioned in silver and chased with a beautiful ivy leaf pattern across the front. The locket is also silver and chased with a line of forget me nots down the centre with golden forget me nots and leaves on either side.
Forget me nots were a popular motif in the Victorian era and symbolic of eternal love and remembrance. They were often paired with ivy leaves which similarly represented an unbreakable bond, as in the Victorian rhyme “Close clings the ivy to the tree, so in my heart I cling to thee”.
It’s a grand piece of Victorian jewellery and complete with rims and windows within the locket ready to house two cherished family portraits.
