GOOD: This Victorian Niello glass round locket is in great wearable condition. The Niello checkerboard pattern is crisp and the glass domes are firmly held in place. There is a small scuff to the Glass, which can only be seen under close inspection (with good eyes!) or a magnification jeweller's loupe. The screw-top clasp has a tiny amount of damage over time, with a small not noticeable crack in its centre. The crack doesn't go all the way through the clasp, but it's worth noting just so you give her the care she deserves. With this in mind, please don't over screw the clasp, and to open the locket you need to unscrew in an anti-clockwise motion. Even though we recommend not over-screwing the clasp, only a few gentle screws will keep the glass in place. Nevertheless, with the right owner, this beauty will bring you joy and pleasure for many more years.
