Victorian Locket | Malachite & Sterling Silver Antique Locket | Green Striped Stone | Oval Locket Glass Back - 20 Inch Sterling Silver Chain

$165.00

A very special antique locket from the Victorian period with vivid green Malachite gemstone set into sterling silver on one side and a glass covered locket on the other. A discreetly subtle yet beautiful locket with divine color that looks like a pendant when worn.

+ All the Details

The locket bezel is sterling silver, unmarked (not unusual for the era) but tested and guaranteed as such. The back is set with a glass cover in a sterling frame, fits easily and snugly in place but needs a sharp blade to remove it, or a jeweler could do this for you. Image 3 shows the locket with glass in place and removed.

Locket Size:
Small/Medium - the oval locket is .8 x 1 inch or 20 x 16mm and rounds out to 10mm in thickness. With the original closed suspension ring included, the drop from the chain is 29mm.

Age: early to mid 1800s. Possibly Georgian rather than Victorian.

Weight: 5.2gms (locket only)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 20 inch or 51cm sterling silver chain, 925 silver and stamped as such to the clasp. Shown on a life size torso in image 4.

Condition: Very, very good. The Malachite stone is beautiful, worn smooth, no fractures or chips, the glass has no damage. Very nice natural patina to the silver and the whole piece is worn smooth and lovely to handle.

Janne's observations:
Such an intriguing and beautiful locket - deep enough to hold a special token, this piece has a definite sense of history about it.
