The sweetest antique Gold heart padlock locket we have had the pleasure of keeping in our collection.
Carefully hand engraved patterns swirl across the domed surfaces, each side being completely unique with a tiny blank cartouche on one side.
With a glass covered compartment on the inside, this locket would be the perfect personalised gift by simply adding a photograph, lock of hair, a tiny momentum or gemstones to its centre.

MEASUREMENTS: 23.7mm long x 17.2mm wide x 5.3mm deep
MATERIALS: 9ct Yellow Gold
HALLMARKS: None present, tested as 9ct Gold
This antique Gold heart padlock locket is in very good condition for its age and has stood the test of time. The engravings are all clear and there are no major signs of wear or pinholes to either side. There is one tiny ding at the top of the side with the cartouche, but this is barely noticeable when worn. It's also worth mentioning that the locket does close shut but sometimes pops open, however, the hinge is stiff so even if it did open it stays at about 1.2mm still keeping its contents hidden. The original glass is in perfect condition, rare for a piece of antique jewellery this of this age. A wonderful gift for the one you love or a special treat for yourself!
