A fine heavy solid Sterling Silver locket from the Victorian era, in fantastic antique condition! This Victorian locket is both exceptionally rare and beautiful, and features a wonderful monogram design and elegant domed shape.
It's a large, substantial piece, measuring nearly 5cm tall (excluding the bale)and weighs over 30g!
The craftsmanship is exceptional throughout, from the gorgeous italic lettering, to the over-sized tapered bale, to the decorative hand engraved patterns all along the edges.
It's a great statement piece with authentic antique charm. If you look inside you'll see the faded remnants of the original Victorian photographs, which are equally haunting and intriguing!
Robust enough for daily wear, she looks great on a simple heavy belcher chain.
Chains can be added at the checkout.
MEASUREMENTS: The body of the locket measures 38mm x 48mm, not including the bale.
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver.
HALLMARKS: None present, tested as Sterling Silver.
This is a fairly heavy locket with very solid construction, which is probably why it is in such excellent condition today! The hinge is tight and the locket closes with a firm "snap".
The Silver is absolutely gorgeous with no scratches or dings whatsoever, and has a lovely aged patina in its recesses. You can really feel the age and history carried in a piece like this.
This locket also features original metal and glass frames in both sides, which is exceptionally rare for a piece of jewellery made in the mid-1800's. It even has the original photographs still inside. Incredible! This wonderful locket is ready to be worn and enjoyed. A truly stunning piece of antique jewellery.
