Vintage Basketweave Locket

#055 Vintage Basketweave Locket

Wear a piece of history around your neck....

This vintage locket is made of raw brass, with copper fittings inside, and has a finely textured chequerboard or basketweave pattern on both sides.
It hangs, via a vintage brass jump ring, from a fine, brass, opera-length chain from the 1950's.
The entire piece has aged to a rich gold colour, but is still quite bright. The locket sports tiny rust marks inside and out - see the photographs - as a testament to its age. It opens and closes smoothly and easily.

The locket is empty, ready for you to insert your own picture or photograph - maybe with a lock of hair from someone special, or a tiny piece of fabric or ribbon.
The Victorians loved lockets, and used to keep all kinds of things in them. They were worn inside or outside the clothing, by both men and women, including soldiers in battle, so that they could keep their loved ones close all the time.
This simple piece has a real Olde Worlde ambience.

The locket measures 30mm, not including the baile, and the chain measures 94.8cm - long enough to be worn wrapped two or three times around the neck, if desired.

Silverlight Jewellery designs are handmade works of art. Each one has a unique name and number, and will never be repeated.
