Gilt Silver Shield Locket Necklace
This locket has such a beautiful antique feel to it, with a shield engraving in the center and an intricate cross-hatch style design. It's very reminiscent of Victorian engravings and symbolism, despite its late Art Deco era history. Its oval shape makes it a great everyday classic piece. We've placed this piece on a newer vintage gold filled chain.
HISTORY: The 835 mark on this piece indicates its of European origin. Overall we date this to the late Art Deco period, 1940's.
MATERIALS: Gold plated 835 silver locket and 12k gold filled chain. 835 represents 83.5% silver, as opposed to sterling's 92.5%.
SIZE: 16" chain. The locket measures 1 3/4" north to south by 15/16" east to west.
CONDITION: Great condition. The locket opens and shuts properly, and has only very minor light scratches and wear. The inside contains its protective covers for photos. The chain is new-old-stock/never used.
This locket would make a wonderful gift, particularly for someone seeking a charm with protective symbolism.
