What You Should Know: Crystal Locket opens in back. Lapis is signed.

Lapis Lazuli is one of the most vibrant and energetic stones available, and it happens to have a very storied past. During the 18th century, people who belonged the English and French courts would wear jewelry that followed a certain language. Each gemstone would be specifically selected to convey some sort of message. Lapis for example was used to say “good luck” or even “love me”. With multiple meanings per stone, the setting of the stone would help narrow down the particular interpretation. It’s easy to defer that this gorgeous Georgian locket was meant to disclose the latter, as the heart shape also represents “Love Me”.

A vivid blue Lapis Lazuli was hand carved into a heart shape back in the 1700s to create the focal point of this antique locket. Surrounding the lapis are several old cut white diamonds mimicking the heart outline of the stone. The bail is also covered in sparkling diamonds, with a warm yellow gold chain strung through. The back of the locket still has its crystal intact, a rare feature that has stood the test of centuries of wear.

This Georgian locket is both bold and pretty, and we adore the secret love it shares within its materials.
