Lockets have been worn for centuries, but it was the Victorians that really elevated them into sentimental powerhouses.

Worn as a charm or as a statement piece, on a watch chain, necklace or long guard, the Victorians wore lockets to signify love, memory and loss.

This collection of antique gold fill lockets from France and the United States showcases some more unusual graphic shapes.
