GOOD TO VERY GOOD. This 9ct Gold cased oval shaker locket with loose antique gemstones is in good to very good condition. The bale is in perfect working order, which will allow you to attach her to a chain with ease. The engraved border has kept beautifully, other than a small mark where the locket has been filed and tested with jewellers acid (we have attempted to polish this out but the mark on the back is still visible). The inside panel of the locket has previously been scratched by a jeweller to test the metal, but we've added a signature Lillicoco touch by adding in pink ribbon and a selection of rare loose antique gemstones.
