Leave it to a queen to start a whole new movement in jewelry. It was Queen Victoria and her beloved Prince Albert that first defined the Sweetheart Locket; with Victoria being gifted a charm bracelet with eight hanging pendants, each containing a lock of hair from their children - to after Albert’s passing - where she had a locket dangling, his portrait encasing. A wearable reminder of the love they clearly had for each other and the beginning of the lock down of lovers.
Each locket is one-of-a-kind, and in some cases, over 100 years old. Each has unique wear and tear that adds to the charm and history of the piece.
