Vintage Sterling Silver Locket Necklace | 1977 English Hallmarks | Queen's Jubilee Jewelry | Photo Locket - 25 Inch Vintage 925 Silver Chain


An unusual sterling silver locket, made in the Victorian style in 1977 to commemorate the silver jubilee of Queen Elizabeth ll. The locket has a 'hatch' style back to hold a memento or image, lined with red leopard print papers.

+ All the Details

The highly polished silver locket shows a series of hallmarks for sterling silver, the City of London, England and the year 1977 - the central 'Queen's Head' stamp denotes the 25th Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The maker's mark 'D&H' is also present.

The inside has the two original liner papers, one with a film cover (one paper is fixed in place and is unlikely to have ever had a film cover, purely a liner).

1.15 x 1.4 inches or 29 x 36mm and approximately 8mm in thickness. The drop from the chain including the shaped bail is 1.85 inches or 47mm.

Weight: 30 grams (including the chain)

Condition: Excellent. No issues to report.

The Chain:
As found, on a long 25 inch or 635mm sterling silver curb chain, stamped 925 to the clasp. Shown on a life size torso in image 3.

Janne's Notes
Very different and nicely weighted locket made in the Victorian style but with a 1977 date stamp, wouldn't this make a fantastic 40th birthday gift?
