A beautiful, super quality vintage English sterling silver locket hallmarked in 1977.
Edwardian in style the locket is a slender oval in shape with an elegant fan shaped fluted bale. The front is engraved in a pretty floral flourish pattern with a zig-zag border and the back is left smooth.
The locket opens from the side to reveal two compartments for precious photos, the picture rings are fixed in place so your photos simply tuck behind them.
A elegant and classic vintage English locket in a generous medium size that will accommodate good sized photos. It is in very good condition with light surface scratches and a slight dimple in the back where it has been opened and closed over the years. The hinge is solid and it closes tightly with a firm click.
We have added a new Italian sterling silver fine curb chain so this lovely piece is ready to wear right out of the box, the perfect vintage jewellery gift for a loved one or a nice little treat for yourself.
