  • sterling silver functioning locket

  • 1" by 5/8" 

A charming locket great for everyday wear. The buckle motif was a popular theme throughout the Victorian Era and was used to represent union, trust, and protection. It was a symbol of two things becoming one, the end result stronger than its individual parts. We think this sentiment is particularly lovely, with the potential of personalizing this locket with photos or mementos of your own.

*Please note, the inside of this locket is lined with textured red wax paper, not glass. There is a small ding on the backside of the locket, not visible when worn.
