This is a stunning Victorian Buckle Locket, with collar (short chain). It is circa 1880, and in excellent condition. The collar consists of beautiful links that are 1/2 inch wide. The collar itself measures about 16 and 1/2 inches long. Then there is another ring with three more decorative links (not increasing size of chain), a jump ring, and the bale of the locket which is 2 inches long. The locket itself measures 1 and 5/8 inches long, and 1 and 1/8 inches wide. All of this is unmarked, but tested Silver (sterling). The locket has the buckle motif that was so popular in Victorian times. It was said that Queen Victoria was too modest to wear her garter (symbol of head of the Order of the Garter) on her leg, but she wore it on her arm, and her subjects copied her with buckle bracelets, rings, lockets, etc. The locket opens and there is a place for two photos. There is no glass; it really is not necessary, but some could be added if one desired to do so. The entire collar and locket weighs at least 42.05 grams and probably a little more because it was a little large to fit on the jewelry scale properly. This piece certainly makes a stunning statement, and if you like silver jewelry, this would be hard to resist.
