A vintage sterling silver locket pendant necklace. This beautiful vintage floral locket is composed of a great 925 sterling silver metal which forms thick single rings linked together to make the long necklace chain. The chain wraps through the pendant bail which suspends a gorgeous oval locket that has an etched floral scrollwork design on the front of it that is stunning. The top of the pendant bail is signed "STJ" as well as "925" and two other stamped marks. The signature "STJ" possibly stands for St. John and the 925 denotes the amount of silver metal in the pendant being 92.5% silver mixed with 7.5% of other alloy metals. The inside of the locket has a space for a small photo of a special loved one. The space measures 1 1/2" long by 7/8" wide and the locket snaps shut with a tiny latch that holds very well. The inside of the locket is also signed "925" and the locket measures 2" long by 1" in width. The chain is fastened with a spring ring clasp that is signed "Sterling" and the entire chain measures 24 1/8" in length. This item is in fantastic overall condition with no wear to the sterling silver chain or locket at all.
