Victorian Enamel Pearls Pansy Locket Pendant
This beautiful locket from the Victorian era is made 18kt yellow gold (tested). The front is adorned with navy blue enamel (small chip on the top left) and a flowery motif is the centre. It is surrounded with seed pearl. You can open it and it reveals a pansy. You can also open the back of the pendant and see the same flower, strongly linked with the remembrance. The pansies are made from brunette hair. Pansy flower refers to the French word Pensée that means “thought/remember”. It was beautifully engraved.
Lockets were very trendy during the Victorian and Edwardian years; it remains nowadays because those little boxes affect our memories. Worn close to the heart, it holds our remembrances, pictures of people you love.
