Holiday Antique Locket Giveaway

**Update 12/15: Congrats go to Sharon Buck for winning this locket! Thanks to all who entered… there are more giveaways to come! e-mail us the address you would like the locket sent, Sharon, to lauren@laurenrosedesign.com. :)

Enter to win our best blog giveaway yet by posting a comment below! You will win this stunning gold filled antique Victorian Fleur de Lis Locket, hallmarked “SKM CO”, c. 1880. We will pick a winner at random on Wednesday, December 15th – just in time for a Christmas delivery! Check back late on Wednesday in the blog comments to see if you were chosen.  Note that the locket shows some character with an old repair done on the interior with solder — though it does not detract from the beauty of the piece in the least and is fully functional.

I love antique lockets and have started collecting them. I
like to imagine who the individuals were that gave and
received them. I think they are spiritual items worn near
the heart with pictures of those they loved in them. I’m a
hopeless romantic and love history, so lockets are an ideal
item for the collector in me. I am of French descent,the
Fleur de lis would be a perfect addition. The fact that it
is repaired shows that it was valuable to whomever had owned
it.

Magnificent piece…. truly makes you wonder about the history behind it and who must have worn it so very long ago…. I am in total agreement that it does have character!!!

Post a lovely locket! I can imagine the first owner receiving this as a gift from a loved one on Christmas morning. I wonder how many different photos have been safely held inside of it over these past 130 years.

Such a pretty locket! I collect antique lockets, but my collection is lacking a unique square one like this. I’d love to add this to my collection!
