Antique lockets have been popular since the Victorian era and were often used to hold sentimental items such as photographs, locks of hair, or small keepsakes. They were worn as a symbol of love, remembrance, or even mourning.
Antique lockets can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, silver, brass, and other metals. They may also feature enamel, gemstones, or intricate filigree designs for added beauty.
Determining the exact age of an antique locket can be challenging. However, you can estimate its age by examining the style, craftsmanship, and materials used. Additionally, hallmarks or maker's marks on the piece can provide more information about its origin and age.
Gently clean your antique locket with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove any dirt or oils. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage the locket. Store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent tarnishing or other damage.
While antique lockets are often made from durable materials, they can still be delicate due to their age. It's best to wear your locket on special occasions or when you feel comfortable taking extra care to protect it from potential damage.
Some antique lockets can be customized or resized, but it's important to consult with a professional jeweler who specializes in antique jewellery to ensure that any alterations do not damage the piece.
