Locket responds positively to tests for silver.
Condition: The bad news - The locket does show some signs of its age, including 2 little wear marks (front top right) and there are 4 little balls missing (These have been lost symmetrically so not obvious at all). Also, even though the locket still closes firmly and is secure its not quite as tightly as it once did. There are other minor marks and and knocks but only noticeable on close inspection. (Please see magnified photo’s for full details).
The good news - All these faults are clearly photographed and ultimately take very little from the lockets beauty. The chain is a latter addition and is in immaculate condition, it’s solid and we believe the perfect length for this locket.
