Victorian Silver & Enamel Shirt Collar & Locket

$5,200

Once in a lifetime we see something like this enameled silver collar with detachable locket and original box. The more you look, the more different flowers you spot. The language of Floriography was a romantic, subtle method of communication in the Victorian era; speaking your feelings wasn't always appropriate, but feelings needed to be communicated nonetheless. The original silk velvet lining on the back is curved and ultra-soft to protect your collarbones.
