Gorgeous locket in a shape of a lady decorated with three pendants in her hips. The Lady has a beautiful dress decorated with flowers. The locket opens from the bottom and allows the storage of small items inside, pictures specially; the piece has a ring for a lace. Reliquary lockets were treasured by their owners as souvenirs of pilgrimages, used as amulets and talismans, and given to the images of favorite saints as votive offerings. Lockets were used as devotional items to inspire and comfort believers. During Colonial Times these lockets evolved into a unique genre of devotional jewelry and artistic expression.
