This locket is inspired by the jewellery of the Victorian era, when lockets became popular because of Queen Victoria, who was very admired and a trend setter of her time. She used to wear a very special locket with a portrait of her husband Albert, who had dies very suddenly, and was a loss she never really got over. The Victorians were a sentimental society, so seeing their Queen so publicly wearing a sign of mourning and love for her husband set off a new trend.
This is what I wanted to bring forward with this locket, a beautiful piece of jewellery you can wear to cherish and keep the ones you love close to you.
I have now also made them in a mini version, so that you can wear twinning ones with for instance your daughter, or just wear a smaller ones yourself.
The chain in its full length measures 48 cm. The large locket is 3 cm long, 2,5 cm wide and 0,5 cm thick, the small locket is 1,5 cm long, 1 cm wide and 1 cm thick. The chain and locket is gold-plated silver, it is silver stamped and also stamped with the MM signature. It comes in different colour varieties which is hand painted enamel with a small white faux pearl in the middle.
