Over 115 years ago, this wonderful sterling silver envelope locket was fashioned. The hammered sterling silver design is stamped with full UK hallmarks from the Birmingham, England assay office for the year 1904. The envelope opens for little letters, photographs, or inspirational words to be placed inside. The pendant is set on a new sterling silver paperclip chain hand finished with a lobster clasp and ring. There is a ding on the bottom of the envelope by the hallmarks but it does not distract from the beauty of this special piece.
Necklace Chain: 24 inches
Envelope: 24mm x 29mm (between 1 and 1 1/4 inches)
Hallmarks: Maker's mark "C V & Co" for Gourdel Vales & Co, a lion passant for solid sterling silver, the town mark for Birmingham, England, and the date letter "e" for 1904

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.
