A lovely quality and very pretty solid sterling silver vintage locket hailing from the 1960s. This locket is shaped like a love heart with a built in bale that curls round from the back to the front, it looks like an apple stalk. It has an very attractive engraved floral and zigzag detail on the front with the back left plain and it suspends from a belcher/rolo chain.
Ready to wear right out of the box, it would be lovely for a bride to wear, or would make a special anniversary or simply a "love you" present. The locket opens to reveal 2 photo stations, paper liners and hard plastic covers, there are lips around the inside edges so photos are tucked underneath to hold them in place. Opens and closes securely from the side, it benefits from a sturdy hinge and closes with a solid click, to protect the memories you will put inside.
