A beautiful 1950s antique style sterling silver locket and chain. This is a heavy gauge locket and a solid good quality piece. It is prettily engraved in a Victorian fern pattern running in a sloping diagonal line across the front leaving a smooth area that traditionally would be left free to engrave the owners initials.

The locket opens to reveal two compartments for photos along with the original removable silver picture rings and the cardboard and paper liners. One side of the locket holds a vintage black and white photo of an attractive woman in iconic 1950s garb which can be removed should you wish. The locket opens easily and closes tightly with the heavy duty hinge in perfect condition and it is stamped 'Sterling Silver' on the back.

It comes on more modern, but well suited, good quality cable link Italian chain. The chain is 18" in length and it fastens with a spring ring and is hallmarked '925 Italy' The locket measures 1-1/4" high without the suspension ring and 1" wide (32x25mm) with a depth of 7mm. The total weight is 8 grams.

Offered in excellent condition, a little light surface wear as you would expect of any preloved locket of this age but nothing untoward.

Antique jewellery, by its very nature, is more fragile than modern jewellery and can be more prone to damage. Many of our pieces are 150 years old or more, it is part of their charm and they will require special care.

We guarantee all our items as described but can not guarantee they won't need maintenance or repair due to use and wear. With a modicum of care, the jewelry you are fond of can last many more lifetimes to come.

We accept no responsibility for pieces that become damaged whilst in your possession and such damaged items cannot be returned.
With thousands of online sales under our belt we are accomplished international shippers. We ship worldwide and will dispatch your order with tracking within one business day of ordering. Your highly anticipated purchase will arrive quickly and be beautifully gift wrapped and safely packaged to boot. Shipping upgrades are available at checkout too should you need it even faster. If you have any special delivery service requests feel free to send us a message.
We offer a sizing service for our rings and a traditional engraving service for our jewelry. Contact us for details and pricing.
We are unable to show our entire collection in our Etsy shop so if you are looking for something that we don't have please feel free to contact us by email, phone or through our website. We have many more items in stock than are listed and may have the perfect piece. However, we do not make custom/bespoke jewelry to order, our focus is purely on preowned vintage and antique.
We do our utmost to accurately date and describe our jewelry. We use a variety of techniques, testing and observation. All precious metals are tested whether hallmarked or not. We use electronic testing equipment (Auracle & Misar) and acid testing. Colored gemstones are tested with the Presidium Duo Tester and diamonds with the Diamond Selector II. We use industry standard gauges and digital calipers for measuring gemstones. When we have jewelry appraised we use independent gemologists and jewellers who have no connection to or vested interest in our shop.
Items in original condition may be returned for any reason. Notification of return should be made within 3 days of receipt and item posted within 7 days. Buyer pays return shipping costs. After 3 calendar days all sales should be considered final.

The full mailing address for returns can be found on your printed receipt inside your package. Tracking and/or insurance is a good idea since items lost in transit cannot be refunded.

We will refund the purchase price minus original shipping cost within 48 hours of receipt. If the item qualified for free shipping $15 (US) will be deducted to cover original shipping cost

Items ordered from us that are refused at delivery or returned to us as unclaimed /undeliverable will be issued store credit.
It is ESSENTIAL to mark the package and your local customs form "RETURNED GOODS". because returned goods don't incur HMRC import and customs charges in the UK. Use your local POST OFFICE to return your package.

Please DO NOT use Fedex, UPS, or any other commercial carrier without our express written authority.

Failure to follow the correct return procedure may result in UK import and customs fees being charged in error. Should this occur such fees will become the responsibility of the buyer and will be deducted from the refund amount until such times as a reversal is granted by HMRC.
