Antique Orb Locket | Victorian Sterling Silver Ball Locket | Large Silver Ball Locket | Memento, Medication Locket - 30 Inch Sterling Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

An intriguing and very beautiful Victorian orb locket in sterling silver. The opening edge and integral hinge are superbly fitted so that they are barely visible when worn; perfect to carry that special memento.

+ All the Details

Both locket and heavy suspension ring are unmarked sterling silver, tested and guaranteed as such. The silver has a lustrous satin polish and beautiful natural patina.

Size: 28mm or 1.1 inches in diameter and the drop from the chain including the suspension ring is 38mm or 1.49 inches.

Age: mid-late 1800s

Weight: 13.5gms (locket only)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 30 inch or 76cm sterling silver chain, stamped to the clasp for 925 silver. Photograph 2 shows the locket and chain on a life size torso.

Condition: Very good. Though the locket has many shallow indentations as shown in the images, they do not detract at all from its beauty. Lovely patina to the silver, hinge and closure both excellent. Please note: black patches are camera reflections in the polished silver.

Janne's observations:
An object of great beauty, just wonderful. I always look for orb lockets and they are becoming increasingly rare.

PLEASE NOTE: the shipping on this valued locket is via International Courier, hence the higher rates.
