Lockets: Treasures in Silver and Gold Print This Post

October 19, 2016 | By | Reply More

Fashion trends come and go, but there is one trend that never goes out of style. Evolving from ancient amulets, lockets began to appear in Europe in the 16th century. Small pendants that opened to reveal a small space carried good luck charms, small squares of fabric soaked in perfume to ward off unpleasant smells, and painted portraits.

During the Elizabethan era, only the wealthy wore lockets, as the jewelry itself and the miniature portraits within were quite costly. But during the Victorian era, lockets became a must-have fashion accessory.

Now Apples of Gold brings you a selection of gold lockets and silver lockets for your enjoyment. What more romantic way to keep a reminder near your heart than wearing a locket?
