EXCELLENT-VERY GOOD: This solid 9ct Gold rectangular Garnet star locket is in superb condition for its age.

The interior is also just as good, but it is worth mentioning that one of the original frames is a little loose. However, we are confident that you can still place a photograph of your beloved and they will stay just where they should. The entirety of the locket has accrued a soft satin Patina from age too, giving this locket plenty of both warmth and depth.
