VERY GOOD: This 14ct Gold Georgian heart locket is in wonderful condition. The locket has kept its shape well without any signs of dings, and the 14ct Gold has mellowed to a really nice buttery finish. There is some wear to both the inscriptions, but it is legible under close inspection. The glazed hair work inside the locket is completely original and clear, with no scratches. This would be a fantastic addition to an antique collector's jewellery box.
