(This locket contains nickel.)
This gorgeous and rare circa 1920's European locket is made of Alpacca (European spelling) silver which does not actually contain silver at all but is a copper alloy that contains copper, nickel, and zinc. As you can tell from the circa 100 year old age, the metal wears and ages beautifully with a wonderful deep antique patina that is polished yet full of character. A yellow rose is a symbol of friendship and represents joy and cheer with its sunny yellow hue making it the perfect gift for loved ones. This locket slides open to reveal one removable frame ready to hold your beloved photograph. The locket closes with a little notch at the bottom of the locket for a secure closure. A slight pressure is best when sliding it closed to make sure the notch slips into the opening. The locket dangles on a new fancy patterned oval link chain hand finished with a lobster clasp and ring.
Necklace Chain Length: 28 inches
Antique Locket (Oval Only): 32mm x 46mm
Signed on ring: "Alpacca" for German silver with the maker's mark "KJAG"

Caring for your jewelry:
Precious metals such as silver need to be polished from time to time (with the exception of oxidized sterling silver- which does not need to be polished). To extend the time between the polishing of your bright silver, your may store your design in a air tight bag. When your piece does need polishing, I recommend Sunshine sterling silver polishing cloths. If you would like to add a polishing cloth to your order, please contact me through Etsy and I will customize a listing for you. The cost of the cloth is $4.
