Sterling silver opening locket and chain, featuring a lovely engraved front with the letter 'J'. The back is plain.
The oval locket is 2.5cm by 1.9cm. It is in very good condition with some general scratching from normal wear, and a slight indentation to the back.
The hinge works well, and the locket closes tightly. The chain measures 47cm, and is stamped 925.
The silver locket is stamped with a lion, an anchor, and the letter D.
This means that the locket is sterling silver, was assayed in Birmingham, and is dated 1978.
The makers mark is EJC, this Birmingham maker manufactured items from around 1975 to 1979.
This is a beautiful vintage locket and necklace from the 1970s.
