Vintage Locket Collection

I am always on the hunt for vintage lockets and am very excited about my most recent finds.  I stumbled along these heirlooms at a local antique store.  They are Victorian, dating back to the late 1800's - early 1900's. All of the pieces are 14k gold-filled and in mint condition.  

The heart locket has a clear gems in the center. Adjacent is a circular locket with a raised design that is embellished with clear jewels.  I passed on the plain gold locket and bought the one with moon and star that is accented with stones.  Even more special are the old is are old photos of someone's loved ones inside. 

Next, I rehab them and make chains that pair well with each one. Keep checking Vintage Rehab's shop for new vintage locket necklaces.
