1889: The year Nellie Bly began her journey around the world in under 80 days. This locket didn’t belong to Nellie, but it’s fascinating to think about where this Victorian keepsake has traveled & the mementos held inside during the past 129 years. Available for 3️⃣ more days in our @modaoperandi

The technique by which a jeweler creates a decorative (and usually repetitive) pattern on a metal surface and then coats it in translucent enamel is known as guilloché enamel. These pieces have the illusion of depth and texture but are smooth and even to the touch. Rendered in candy apple red guilloché enamel, this petite Victorian heart locket sparkles with a .05ct old mine cut diamond and hangs from a new 14k gold 18" chain. Shop the link in our bio section or see it at our Nolita shop. ❤️💎 #victorianlocket #heartlocket #diamond #enamel

I finally finished my vintage locket collection! This collection is a mixture of vintage lockets (lockets taken off necklaces and repurposed), vintage locket supplies (old lockets that never got used or made into necklaces) and Vintage inspired lockets (the gold plated lockets). Lockets have been adorned with a medley of vintage and new findings to create a dainty and whimsical feel. .
