EXCELLENT. A stunning Edwardian 18ct Gold Red Enamel heart locket in excellent condition. First and foremost the pendant is exquisite, she doesn't bear any sign of wear, the Enamel is bright and the Pearls are chip free and securely set. The locket back has its original frame and glass, and you can suspend this piece from her sturdy jump ring. The fitted box has also stood the test of time incredibly well, her cushion is plump, the satin smooth and the box's exterior is quite frankly divine. This is an immaculately presented piece which you can't help but adore!
