Hallmarked 1863 Victorian Sterling Large Choker and Large Locket. This is a very unusual and early piece. The choker is a complex design and hand soldered with small "balls" along the outside, and large ones on the inside. Note one inside ball is missing, and one of the round discs with star is also missing.
The clasp is not hallmarked. Some of the links show some damage and/or repairs - the links might even be hollow as this is not terribly heavy. The pendant is hand engraved and quite large at 1 3/4" x 2 1/8" not including the loop. The pendant has been on this chain for quite some time, but I have no way of knowing if these came together. Inside, one bezel is present, and the other is not.The pendant is hallmarked with the sterling standard and the London 1863 date mark. Total weight is 58.7 grams.
