Cevşen Locket

Made in Turkey

$80.00
Sterling silver cevşen locket with the chain measuring approximately 16" long. The cevşen locket itself is about 1" wide and 1" tall. Vintage, handmade in Turkey.

All of our Turkish jewelry is either vintage or antique and are sourced from the marketplaces in Istanbul. When possible, the vintage pieces were purchased directly from the artisans themselves. This portion of Yapoma is a joint venture with my father who has amassed these pieces over the span of his lifetime: this spans the past 70 years when he lived in Istanbul, and more currently, during his travels back home.

Cevşens are either openable and empty lockets or closed vessels with prayer scrolls rolled up inside. The lore of the cevşen is that one keeps a lock of a loved one's hair, a prayer, or some other special item or piece of writing inside and, of course, when worn is kept close to the person's heart.
