An individual handmade silver necklace featuring a solid silver vintage locket, freshwater pearl and bead.
There is something fascinating about lockets - the secret within. The vintage lockets are all solid silver and are bought at antique fairs. 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 modern lockets). All the lockets open and most can have two photos inside.
This makes a wonderful gift for a special birthday, Valentines or Mothers' Day for a mother or grandmother. I've also made these for girlfriends, engagements, wedding presents and a 60th birthday.
Wear it long or short: this necklace is very easy to wear and always looks good. Comes boxed and can be gift wrapped.
The locket comes with a pearl and you can chose a bead option within the price. If you want other charms you can add them for an additional charge eg a birthstone.
You can also chose your length chain. The longer lengths of belcher (55cm/22" and over) move onto a heavier weight for strength.
Choose the shape of your locket: oval & round.
Please bear in mind this is a vintage locket and will have some signs of wear. Age of the lockets range from 1950s - 1970s. 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. 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.
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 provided to remove any tarnish.
My standard chain lengths range from 40cm/16" - 81cm/32". Lockets vary in size from 1.5cm-5cm.
