A charming vintage 1940s Vargas 10 carat rolled gold/gold filled sterling silver heart locket & chain.

Rolled gold/ gold fill is a mechanically bonded layer of solid gold, over a base metal, in this case sterling silver. It is much thicker than modern electroplating and can withstand plenty of wear and use without the silver showing through.

The locket is engraved and chased on one side in a very pretty floral & heart pattern with the other decorated in guilloche engraved lines so you can wear either side facing to vary the look. It opens from the side and has two fixed photo frames inside, pictures simply tuck under the rim. The locket suspends from a classic curb link chain.

MATERIALS: rolled gold/gold filled sterling silver

MEASUREMENTS: locket 1" (25mm) high, measured with bale, 5/8" wide (20mm) and 5mm deep, chain 17" (43cm)

WEIGHT: 5 grams

HALLMARKS: locket stamped '1-20/10K G.F.', 'VARGAS' and 'STERL. TRIMMINGS' (indicating a 1/20 ratio of solid gold over silver)

DATE: Art Deco, 1940s

CONDITION: Very, very good vintage condition with no wear to the gold layer, (any dark marks are camera shadow). The locket closes securely and the hinge is in good order. The chain is kink free and the clasp fastens securely
