pre 1939 vintage sterling silver - gold over sterling silver locket
by: Yvonne

HI Danielle
thanks for writing in. Your locket sounds beautiful and was made in SIAM before 1939. Up until 1939, sterling silver jewelry pieces from this area were marked "Siam" or "Siam Sterling".

In 1939, the country changed it's name to - Thailand and then the silver pieces had markings such as "Made in Thailand" "Thailand 925" & "Thailand Sterling Silver".

Some of the jewelry from Thailand is called "Nielloware" and is recognized by a sterling silver setting with black enamel designs. This type of silver jewelry is collectible.

Warm Wishes,

Yvonne
