Not very many pieces of antique jewelry are dated. Those that are tend to be sentimental (lockets, wedding bands, etc.). I rarely, rarely find a dated piece but when I do it is such a joy. It is like finding a little piece of a time capsule. That's how I feel about these two pieces -an 1894 locket and a 1904 heart pendant. Can you believe that the locket is nearly 120 years old?! Wow. You will see the locket in the shop a little later this summer the heart pendant will be part of Monday's shop update.
