This romantic 9ct Gold puffy heart-shaped locket was made just after World War II and bears English hallmarks for 1948. It's beautifully crafted from rich 9ct Yellow Gold and has pretty foliate engravings and tiny little flowers on both sides.
The locket has a "puffy" three-dimensional profile so it really looks beautiful catching the light as you move.
The dainty size is perfect for daily wear! We've added a 16" 9ct Gold plated chain so it's ready to wear or gift straight away.
(Unlike most Gold plated chains this one is 9ct Gold over Sterling Silver and plated very thickly, so it won't discolour or tarnish at all. Treated with care it should last a lifetime and no-one will know it's not Gold unless they check the hallmarks!)
A perfect gift for any occasion, or a well-deserved treat!
