A beautiful vintage 1970s English sterling silver engraved locket that suspends from a lovely weight of neck chain with classic curb links and an elegant bolt ring fastener.
The front of the locket is beautifully decorated in a pretty floral and foliate engraved pattern with the back left smooth. It opens from the side to reveal 2 stations for your photos along with the original paper liners and clear plastic picture covers that we have left in place. There are 2 silver foil frames inside too.
The locket is fully hallmarked for 1977 on the back. It is in very, very good condition with a faint surface scratches and light tarnish as expected in a locket of this age but absolutely no dents or dings. The locket closes tightly shut with a satisfying snap and the hinge is in good order. The chain is a fairly thick gauge and sturdy with the links damage free.
A lovely traditional silver locket necklace, very pretty, great for everyday wear and good to go right out of the box!
