Victorian-era inspired poison/prayer box locket on a silver chain
Small. Intimate. Timeless. Some call it a poison box locket or a prayer locket or even a mourning locket. We just call a custodian of memories. Featuring a hinged and latched cover that opens to reveal a secret stash compartment, this locket can be used to keep any tiny object close to you, including solid perfumes or even inspirational notes.
This beautifully detailed, Victorian-era inspired, locket is handcrafted in sterling silver with a pink faceted stone in the center. Comes strung on a classic snake chain. Ready to wear and hold your memories or intentions in. (This locket is pretty small- be sure to check the dimensions.)

Please note: (1) All the jewellery in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewellery.
(2) All the jewellery has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewellery is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewellery is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
