COMMENTS: Though increasingly prominent by the 19th Century, locket necklaces evolved far earlier from ancient amulets. European designs for lockets appear to date to the 16th century, when small pendants were worn to conceal good luck charms to ward off evil spirits. Some lockets were used as a defense against chaotic and germ-ridden settings. A whiff of a pleasant smell could go a long way to defending against the stench of collective living in more densely packed areas, such as within slowly evolving urban centers. These lockets would have contained a small fabric square soaked in perfume. This heart locket it surrounded by gold rope and cultured pearls. There are 4 small diamonds down the front of the locket. Circa 1960's. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
