This Victorian aesthetic Silver locket is in fantastic ready to wear condition with only a little light wear. It's very rare to come across antique lockets like this in such good condition, and this one is a real beauty!
The hinge and bale are strong and the locket opens and closes tight. There are no pin-holes or dents, but there are two light dings to the back. There are also some deeper scratches inside the locket from where previous jewellers have tested the metal, but you cannot see this when the locket is worn and they do no go so deep as to weaken the structure. The front of the locket is impeccable!
