The necklace chain is 20 in length and the locket measures 3.6 cms without the bails, 4.3 cms with the bail loops. Weighs 15.6 grams (necklace and chain together). The chain is stamped 925.
The locket tests as solid sterling silver back and front, with a strong base metal core to support the inner locket and hinge. With minimal light surface scratches and dings, and some tarnish inside. Please look at all of the photos. Apologies for any large black marks in the photos, the locket is shiny and it kept reflecting my black camera, the large black marks you are are not actually marks - just reflections!
