This vintage brass locket has the most amazing engraving detail to both sides. It is made of solid brass that's darkened over time to a rich and mellow gold colour. Inside is a beautiful copper inlaid detail with space for two pictures or photographs.

The chain is a beautifully subtly coppery brass, which co-ordinates with the inlaid interior and hinges of the locket.

It is available a choice of chain lengths. The shorter option, at 18" (46cm), is designed to sit an inch or two below the collar bone, on the chest plate. The longer length is 24" (61cm) and is designed to sit at chest level. The longest is 32" and is designed to be worn long, well below the chest. Please refer to my illustration for a better idea of how these will look when worn.

The locket measures just under 4cm in diameter, so is a good size especially suited to longer lengths.
