Container jewellery to house tokens and special items have been around since Egyptian times and the first  “lockets” held medicinal herbs, religious relics, prayers or perfumes. Elizabeth 1 is thought to have owned one of the first sentimental lockets which was a ring depicting tiny portraits of both herself and her mother Anne Boleyn. Before the invention of photography locks of hair were often put in lockets to remind you of loved ones. The Victorian era took this to a new level with the popularity of mourning jewellery. The popularity of lockets as a keepsake grew with the widespread use of photography and endures today.

The locket measures 1.8cm x 1.5cm and the chain measures 40cm with a 3cm extension.
