Masonic signet rings, engraving locket and Jewelry
The decorative techniques of embossing, chasing and engraving all gave the illusion of mass and substance, giving an impression of larger items containing more gold, silver or precious metals. Items such as antique chased, engraved lockets, silver Victorian chains and other similarly ornate items of jewelry are all styles reflective of the Victorian era.
Embossed, chased and engraved jewelry, such as lockets, were extremely popular, particularly in the early Victorian period, as precious metals were in short supply.
Engraving gouges or carves into the metal. A range of tools are used which will cut into the surface. This is used for lettering, and also for bringing the illusion of facets to the surface of metal.

Antique Chased Engraved Locket Silver Victorian
Antique chased, engraved lockets, silver Victorian chains, and other vintage jewelry will have taken on a patina over the years and it is a shame to lose this by over polishing the surface. It is possible to get a bright silver finish again, however as this entails taking a microscopic layer of silver off of the surface, it is not recommended.
Chased and embossed lockets are likely to be made from reasonably thin metal and as such will get dented or knocked with too much hard wear and tear. This can enhance the overall feel of the locket, or a jeweler might be able to take out the knock.
The hinges of the locket will be many years old, so open and close with care. Concern should be taken not to pull or knock the hinges out of line so as not to stress the metal causing it to snap.
