A beautiful vintage 1960s sterling silver oval locket and chain. The front of the locket is engraved with a very pretty forget-me-not flower and the back is plain and smooth.
The locket has a lovely pillowed profile and it opens from the side. There is space to put 2 photos or a lock of hair inside and it opens and closes securely with a satisfying click to protect the precious contents within. The locket suspends from a 18" Italian sterling silver trace chain with lovely flat cut links that add a beautiful sparkle to this piece.
The locket is in very good vintage condition with no dents or dings, there's minor surface wear, light scratches and a faint impression of lettering on the inside. The chain is in excellent condition. Please see the photos and excuse any reflections the locket has a lovely mirror finish so it is very reflective.
