Victorian 14K yellow gold pendant/locket. On the western coast of Italy, Victorians discovered ancient Etruscan tombs (dating from 700 – 300 B.C.) containing beautiful, intricate jewelry made of rich yellow gold in a design that had never been seen before. For the Victorians, this was like they had just discovered King Tut’s Tomb! A frenzy for Etruscan-inspired jewelry ensued and this stunning, hand fabricated locket would’ve been very fashionable and highly sought after during this time. Delicately ornamented on the surface with intricate granulation, as well as a locket compartment, this piece has everything you could hope for in a Victorian Etruscan Revival piece! The locket measures approximately 2.25 inches in length from the top of the bail by 1 inch in width. Chain sold separately.

When you're not wearing your jewelry, store it in a clean, dry, room temperature, safe place. Avoid tossing it in a drawer where the gems could get scratched or damaged.
Have your jewelry professionally cleaned and checked as often as you'd like, but we recommend every 4-6 months.
