Antique Pinchbeck & Seed Pearl Picture Locket
This glorious antique picture locket ticks off all the boxes.
Let’s start with her size—an impressive 2 inches long—with an ornate bale that’s beautifully proportioned to her dimensions.
The locket itself has surprisingly modern, clean lines for a Victorian piece. The ornate scrollwork set with natural seed pearls adds the romance you’d expect. She clasps shut with a reassuring click and holds two pictures snugly inside.
She’s made of pinchbeck, an alloy of zinc and copper that was developed in London in the early 1700s by the watchmaker Charles Pinchbeck. Pinchbeck’s finish is a bright sunny gold—that in this case has lasted beautifully for over 100 years.
I suggest you wear her long or short on a long thick chain or pearl necklace. She wants to make a statement so let her. And put something precious (photo, hair, stamp, love note) inside that you’d like to wear close to your heart

For the Antik By SPJ collection, I take great care to find very special antique and vintage jewelry pieces and components that are of exceptional quality. It’s my passion to revive their beauty and craftsmanship in a relevant, chic way.
But they do show gentle signs of their age and history. And they deserve to be treated with care and love. Each piece is unique and tells its own story, and unless noted, cannot be altered.
