A beautiful vintage sterling silver in a classic and beloved style. The locket is a very large size, traditionally these were worn by Victorian ladies on impressive book chain necklaces. It is embossed and engraved on the front in a pretty floral pattern with the back mirror smooth.
The edges of the locket are decorated in granulated silver beads and the top has a tall slender fan shaped bale. It is a deep locket with plenty of room inside to insert large photos or other precious keepsakes. The picture rings are fixed in place so photos simply tuck underneath to hold them in place.
We have added a new sterling silver long chain, our chains are made in Italy, they are high quality and fully hallmarked. They are oxidised to impart an antiqued finish which is perfect for wear with these vintage lockets. The chain is longer than it looks on the mannequin, we had to hitch it up a little for the photo.

WEIGHT: 19.3 grams
CONDITION: Excellent condition with minimal wear, the hinge is heavy duty and in perfect working order and the locket closes tightly with a satisfying snap.
