For Queen Victoria, jewelry was charged with emotion and association. As a child, her mother, the Duchess of Kent, had given her a locket containing a lock of her deceased father’s hair affording the self-styled little orphan a physical link to the late Duke. Twenty years later, just days after her engagement to Prince Albert she begged a lock of her betrothed’s hair too. He dutifully obliged and she mounted it in a glass, heart-shaped pendant which she would wear almost constantly for the rest of her life.
