This lovely little antique silver heart locket is hand chased and engraved on the front in a pretty curved and straight line geometric pattern, a decorative jewellery technique fashionable in the Edwardian and Art Deco eras.
The locket is crafted in 835 silver which is a durable purity grade of silver typically used in old German pieces and has a heavy duty hinge and tab closure. It opens from the side to reveal 2 stations for your precious photos along with the original heart shaped picture frames. The frames are removeable or you can simply tuck your photos underneath to hold them in place.
We have added a new sterling silver trace chain that has elegant flat oval links so it adds a beautiful sparkle to the necklace. Our chains are made in Italy, they are fine quality and fully hallmarked.
This antique locket is lovely quality and solidly constructed so it is quite robust. It is in very good condition with gentle signs of wear and light tarnish in keeping with age, please see the photos and excuse any discoloured reflections. The hinge is in perfect order and it closes securely with a firm click. A charming antique sweetheart locket and ready to wear right out of the box!
