A beautiful vintage English sterling silver "back and front" locket and curb chain. An absolute classic and nice and puffy, the face of the locket is engraved in a very pretty floral pattern at the top that slants and it has a smooth area at the bottom to add an engraving, the back is left plain.
"Back & Front" or "B&F" is a mark found on old British lockets, essentially 95% of the locket is sterling silver with the inner rims a stronger base metal. This construction technique results in a durable locket that will withstand plenty of use .
The locket opens from the side to reveal two compartments for photos, the front compartment has a removeable picture ring and a red paper liner. If you wanted to put another photo in the other side as well just cut it slightly larger and tuck it under the rim to anchor it in place.
This locket suspends from a new sterling silver fine curb chain with diamond cut links that add extra sparkle to the chain. Our chains are made in Italy, they are high quality and fully hallmarked.
A sweet piece of vintage jewellery in a fab retro design. Ready to wear right out of the box the locket is the perfect medium size, ideal for daily wear.
