Vintage Sterling Silver Locket
A Sterling silver locket was popular during the Victorian era and has been a symbol of longing or nostalgia for someone dear to someone’s heart. Silver lockets usually contained hair, teeth, and photographs of the deceased or other love ones. This leads to a tremendous impact on the life of the wearer. A silver locket is generally worn close to the heart by a long chain or clipped in the bodice.
These were popularized by Queen Elizabeth I and American soldiers during the civil war. Some left a lock of hair which were then placed inside the lockets of their significant others in the event of their death.
