Sarah Bingham is a co-owner of Antique Sugar in Phoenix.
Bingham says her father, a retired jeweler, purchased a piece from an LDS member in Pinetop, AZ, about ten years ago, and gave the lock to his daughter to sell.
The locket is believed to be from the 1800s with a photo resembling Brigham Young, the second President and Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“I put it on Instagram, and then, just for fun, I googled Brigham Young just to see, and I was like, oh,” said Bingham. “So, I deleted the post right away, and just kind of been researching it here and there.”
Bingham went back to the interwebs and ask around more about the locket.
“We’ve had a lot of people in the Church that say that is definitely Brigham Young, I thought one of the women looked a lot like one of his wives, so I posted that side by side too, like Eliza Snow and the picture in the locket, and then a couple people were, like, I don’t think that’s Eliza Snow,” Bingham said.
