A delightful antique Victorian locket and chain with hand-tinted photographs still enclosed, circa 1880’s. The locket is 14k yellow gold (tested) with decorative leaf shaped accents at the top and a tooled tapered bail. Overall length of the locket and bail is 2-inches; dimensions of the locket alone is 1 1/4-inches in length and 1-inch wide. Top of locket has a leaf-inspired design with black enameled accent. The bail is tapered with a tooled design. Interior of the locket includes two beveled glass frames and tinted cabinet card images. The locket is strung on a gold-filled double link chain that measures 17 1/2-inches long and 4.2 mm wide. The chain weighs 14.0 dwts. and is probably a bit later (1880’s) in age.  Condition of locket and chain is near perfect considering its age.

Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is.  I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist.  I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc.  I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty.  If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina.  Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can.   Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
