An unusual rectangular shaped locket that opens to reveal a plaited lock of hair. It was made circa 1800-1820 when jewels that sent secret coded messages were popular. This locket spells “Love”. Each first letter of each stone is the key. Lapis Lazuli, Opal, Vermeil Garnet & Emerald . It would have been worn to remember someone whose lock of hair it contains. Around the edge is a snake design that further accentuates the message. The snake had become symbolic of the re-birth of the deceased into the next, spiritual life.
