History of Victorian Lockets...
Lockets have been around for centuries. Originally in the Victorian Era, lockets were given as condolences to those who had lost a loved one. As time passed, the use of lockets expanded. They became wonderfully romantic gifts, and keepsakes, as the lockets were handed down from generation to generation.
The most popular locket throughout the centuries has been the heart shaped locket, since it represents someone else’s heart resting on yours.
Although the heart had taken shape centuries before in Rome, the creation of heart shaped lockets didn't become popular until the romantic Victorian era, when lockets were thought to hold a woman's feelings for the one whose photo was encased within.....
Talk about Romance!
