This is a big, bold and beautiful locket pendant necklace in wonderful condition. It is a statement piece so it is not for the shy or demure.
This extraordinary vintage necklace features an incredible, enormous locket that holds two beautiful black and white photos in the interior.
The exterior has been expertly cast to feature a gorgeous stylized floral pattern in high-relief while the reverse has been beautifully etched with another, stippled floral pattern.
We left the original photos in the locket. We find them charming. Two handsome men that appear to be a son and husband of the wearer. We always find nostalgic wonder in these photos. You could claim them to be your son and husband and people will think you look fabulous for your age!!
The bale of the locket and each link of the chain have been meticulously hand-crafted to feature beautiful, geometric decorative elements that join at the back with a simple box clasp.
The chain linked necklace complements the overall style of the pendant.
A substantial piece, this necklace is perfect for any season's bohemian, opulent styles. In remarkable condition for its age, the locket as well as chain exhibit some very minor darkening but this serves only to draw out the fine detail.
We didn't find any marks on the piece, but it may very well be filled or plated. It has such little tarnish, we don't feel this is a pure fine metal, but can't state with any certainty of the true metal content.
This locket is so unique and such a great size, it is a go-with everything piece. The detailing on the front and especially the fabulous chain with its amazing style, makes this a must-have piece for any collector's jewelry wardrobe.
