This beautiful antique Victorian locket comes with its original chain and it is engraved on the front in a lovely and very detailed floral pattern.
Made of rolled gold which is a mechanically bonded layer of gold over a base metal, the gold is a lovely warm reddish hue which characteristic of old gold. The locket opens from the side to reveal 2 stations for photos along with paper & fabric liners and clear acetate photo covers. Both original picture frames are inside too. The matching chain is a traditional cable chain with sturdy oval links and it fastens with torpedo/barrel clasp.
A charming all original Victorian locket necklace in a classic medium size and ready to wear right out of the box.
