Behold this extraordinary vulcanite Victorian mourning jewelry locket pendant necklace! The locket bears an intricately carved cameo on the facade. When unfastened, two compartments reveal themselves, one with glass still intact, ideal for holding a photo or memento. The chain is a set of graduated, stout ovoid links culminating in a dog clip clasp. Skillfully crafted and a truly remarkable piece of Victorian mourning jewelry that's just as fashionable now as it was 150 years ago!

Our collection consists of pieces that are of antique and vintage condition, which means that all our items are secondhand and used. Customers are not purchasing 'new', 'perfect' and 'unworn items', and as such, should expect wear and imperfection. It should be expected that these pieces will have normal wear and tear according to their age. Wear could include patina, scuffs on the gold, slightly loose but secure stones, and light scratches on the stones. We try our best to accurately photograph everything with detailed pictures that can be enlarged and will point out any flaws we feel are noteworthy. Please review the photos carefully before purchasing and reach out to us with any questions.
