A very sweet vintage 1960s English sterling silver love heart locket engraved on the front in a pretty line and dot floral pattern with the back left smooth. The locket is gently pillowed and it suspends from a fine Prince of Wales sterling silver chain which is also known as a loose rope chain.
The locket opens from the side to reveal 2 stations for your precious photos, the locket sides have a lipped edge so your photos will tuck under to hold them securely in place. This locket necklace is in very, very good condition, there is light surface wear and slight tarnish as you would expect of any used vintage item. The hinge is in perfect order and the locket closes tightly with a solid snap.
A really lovely very vintage love heart locket in a classic beloved design, it is the perfect medium size too, ideal for daily wear.
