Faceted Pyrite + Antique Victorian Heart Locket Necklace

This romantic antique Victorian locket which dates to the late 1890's, features beautiful repousse details of scrolling leafs in a heart shape set with rhinestones.  The back of the locket is engraved with the initials MDC in a classic rolling script font which we think is a beautiful design detail even if those happen not to be your own initials.  This is a lovely historic locket.

ABOUT OUR LOCKET COLLECTION:  Many of our lockets date from the Mid-Victorian to the Edwardian eras.  We love lockets and think that they are the perfect piece of romantic jewelry for those who enjoy sentiment, style and history. 

Our lockets are in good to excellent condition for their age but may show signs of wear or tarnish.  Our jewelry pieces are photographed in natural light and are un-retouched to show their true condition and appearance.  On occasion, some areas that appear to have tarnish may only be showing reflected shadows that appear during the photography session.  If you have any questions about the condition of a locket, we encourage you to contact us prior to your purchase.  We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. 

Your locket will open and close properly.
