Beautiful antique sterling silver Victorian locket, on a sterling book type chain necklace, with large sterling sport ring clasp. This necklace is apprised of 3 vintage pieces that have been married together to form this fabulous necklace.
The locket is from the Victorian era, probably c. The black background paper is still there on both sides.
It is not marked anywhere I could find, but does test as sterling silver. From the top of the bail to the bottom of the locket is 2 1/2. There are only three tiny minor dings on back side of the locket.
Otherwise no issues, opens and closes tightly. Adjoining it to the chain is a large 7/8 sterling silver sport or spring ring clasp. The necklace is a book type chain with 6mm size links, and measures 16 long. It is marked sterling on one of the links near the clasp and tests as such.The total weight of this necklace is 49.1 grams. All my items are come from local estates/auctions, so all will be pre-owned unless mentioned above.
