Description

Victorian gold locket with horseshoe and buckle detail. An oval yellow gold locket with horseshoe motif to front and belt and buckle to reverse, hinged to the left, opening to reveal space for two photographs inside, all to a secure circular bale to top. Tested 15 carat yellow gold, approximately 8.98g in weight, circa 1900.

Lockets were a popular Victorian accessory, so was the use of symbols on their jewellery. To the people of the era, the belt and buckle signified everlasting love, the horseshoe denoted good luck- a symbol popularised by Queen Victoria's son, Prince Edward, who was very fond of horse riding.
