Yesterday, I wrote about Bluefinch Boutique's new range of vintage jewellery and showed you some of my favourites from the range. It was a bit premature as today, I added what is definitely my favourite piece of vintage jewellery in the entire shop! Meet the 'Belle of the ball' vintage locket necklace:
I just adore these lovely vintage ball lockets. They were made in the 1960s and scrub up well with a bit of elbow grease and polish while still retaining their vintage charm. The outside is lovely, shiny brass but pop the locket open, and you will find a contrasting copper compartment:
I love that although this necklace has a very definite 1960s vibe to it, it is simple and classic enough to be really wearable. The necklace is embellished with a gold-plated leaf near the clasp which adds an extra little pretty touch. I'm definitely keeping one of these for myself and anticipate I will wear it a lot!
