Bearing English hallmarks for 1975 this beautiful vintage sterling silver locket is engraved on the front and back in an ornate Victorian design. A fern flourish and forget-me-not flowers are framed in a pretty twisted silver ribbon border. The locket has an elegant flat profile, it is slim from the side and it has a decorative reeded fan-shaped bale.
The front of the locket is deeper and houses a silver photo frame, black satin liner and acetate photo cover. The back is more shallow but would still accommodate a photo using a glue dot or double sided tape to anchor it.
Pretty and feminine in a medium to large size we have added a new Italian 18" sterling silver Belcher chain so this gorgeous locket is ready to wear right out of the box, a quality piece with all of her extra detailing she is the perfect gift or treat for yourself.
