VERY GOOD. This 17.5" Edwardian 9ct Gold heart locket necklace is in lovely antique condition. The lovely locket still has feminine and graceful engravings, plain to see with swirls and flowers against a blank cartouche centre. Perhaps you could engrave yours and a loved one's initials inside! The locket opens and closes well, clicking tightly shut, encasing two frames safely inside. The 9ct Gold chain also has a good weight and minimal wear.
***Please note that the bolt-ring clasp is designed to be worn at the front. It is NOT soldered or attached to the chain, which gives you more freedom and ease to attach charms and customise your look, but you'll need to take care not to get dressed in a rush as it would be easy to misplace it!
