This very pretty feminine English sterling silver locket is Edwardian in style and in remarkable condition given that it is almost 40 years old!
Hallmarked for 1983 the locket is a charming round scalloped shape and engraved on the front with trailing vines and a bright cut star. The locket opens from the side to reveal 2 photo stations that have never been used. The interior contains the original picture rings, blue paper liners and hard plastic covers which we have left in place.
The locket suspends from a high quality Italian silver box chain that has an extender so can be worn at either 16" (41cm) or 18-1/2" (47cm) length, so lots of versatility!
