A Victorian Whitby Jet locket, oval in shape, nicely rounded and glossy jet black, this locket is so lovely to handle. Contrasts of matte texture and glossy border and monogram catch the light beautifully.
The locket has an exquisite monogram to the front 'IMO' for In Loving Memory, hand carved in a perfectly symmetrical design. In this internet era, of course, IMO stands for In My Opinion - a fun gift for a blogger!
+ All the Details
The locket has a silver framed glass insert to the back, lined with the original card and black satin fabric. The frame is silver plated; it is easily removed and the original Whitby Jet in it's natural form can be seen beneath - very interesting historically. See image #4.
The locket bail is also hand carved to shape and fitted into the locket.
The locket itself is 1.25 x 1.49 inches or 32 x 38mm, gently rounding out to approximately 8mm in thickness. The total drop from the chain including the bail and suspension ring is 47mm.
Weight: 9.8 gms (without the necklace chain) Whitby Jet is surprisingly light in weight making it very comfortable to wear.
Presented on a new matte black textured chain, 34 inches or 86cm long. Shown on a life size torso in photograph 3.
Condition: Very good. The front is perfect, there are some small small chips around where the the bail loop is fitted in, these look to be part of the making process. There is also a tiny 1mm chip in the one o'clock position (please see image #2) The locket has been priced accordingly. Note: The glass is easy to remove but fits snugly back into place.
A lustrous beauty - I love the contrasts of matte and gloss in the superb monogram!
