An individual handmade silver necklace featuring a vintage locket, freshwater pearl and bead.
There is something fascinating about lockets - the secret within. This necklace has a vintage locket strung on a sterling silver chain with silver fittings. Each one is slightly different and all have the enticing patina of age. (If you prefer a non-vintage locket in mint condition look at my 'silver locket necklace' which is brand new). All the lockets open and most can have two photos inside.
This makes a wonderful present for a special birthday, a Christening or a young mum who wants pictures of her children inside. I've also made these for girlfriends, engagements, wedding presents and a 60th birthday.
Hanging below the collarbone but visible if wearing a shirt or formal wear, this necklace is very easy to wear.
The locket is available with either just a pearl or with a pearl and a bead, or a bead and no pearl.
You can also chose between two styles of chain. The longer lengths of belcher (55cm/22" and over) move onto a heavier weight for strength.
Choose from a round or oval locket.
I offer a slightly larger locket which incurs an extra cost.
Please bear in mind this is a vintage locket and will have some signs of wear. Each locket is individual and may be slightly different from the picture - there is also some variation in size: if this is an issue please message me via the 'ask seller a question' button to specify.
My standard chain lengths range from 40cm/16" - 81cm/32" with 18"/20"/22" being the most popular - if you would like a longer or alternative chain please message me via the 'ask seller a question'. I am happy to send photos before delivery.
Locket comes boxed. If you choose to have your locket giftwrapped it comes in a pillow box sleeve with ribbon and a label.
I also have a selection of alternative shapes of locket available so again please message if interested.
If you wish to add a birthstone please look at my 'vintage silver locket birthstone necklace'.
The chain is made from modern sterling silver and the locket is silver. All fittings are sterling silver/925. Do not dip in silver dip - you will damage the pearl. Rub with silver cloth to remove any tarnish.
My standard chain lengths range from 40cm/16" - 81cm/32". Lockets vary in size from 1.5cm-5cm. Standard lockets are mostly 2cm.
