Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

An absolutely magnificent Victorian locket and collar of exceptional quality. The locket is adorned with the Tree of Life on both the front and back, and hangs from an intricately chased slider that moves freely along the snake-link chain. The clasp and slider feature the same chased detailing, indicating that the two components (locket and chain) are an original pair. It’s crafted from 15 karat gold throughout, and dates from the mid-Victorian era circa 1870.

The Tree of Life motif occurs in many of the world’s religious and philosophical traditions. It is usually represented as connecting heaven with the underworld, or more generally connecting all forms of creation; often it symbolises immortality and fertility
