The condition of all these hearts should be considered vintage excellent and unless I note otherwise. All are hallmarked in some way to indicate sterling and some have makers marks. From the top of this group of hearts and going clockwise is a: (1) FAS sterling locket - has a star-ray design on the front & is smooth on the back (2) a small engraved sterling locket/charm (has a significant scratched area on the back, but otherwise fine) (3) a hinged heart charm with an Alexandrite stone and the words June (on the front) and the words Alexandrite, Truth and Armony on the inside - what's Armony?? (4) an old Uncas sterling ring with raised relief flowers and two dangling hearts - very tarnished but cool - size five. (5) A petite sterling pendant with pale pink stone - needs a fine sterling chain. (6) a puffy heart charm/pendant with 925 marked on it's jump ring. (7) an open heart sterling pendant with a pale amethyst stone inside a rose - it is missing all but 2 of its original marcasites along the heart, but still looks pretty good.... read more
During the course of the past year, I purchased vintage sterling silver hearts for Valentines day when I could find them reasonably priced. So is a small collection of hearts that you may lavish on your amorata, collect for yourself, or even buy to re-sell - but I bet you will keep at least one!
