A fabulous two tone English rolled gold sunburst heart locket necklace complete with its original cable chain.
The locket is yellow gold in an iconic Art Deco design with a guilloche engraved rising sun/sunburst motif on the front. The chain is original to the locket, it has flat links which adds a lovely sparkle. The links are white gold with the end rings and spring clasp in yellow gold giving a beautiful two tone coordinated effect with the locket.
The locket opens from the side to reveal 2 photo stations that have never been used along with the original picture rings, blue paper liners and hard plastic covers. Both the locket and chain are in lovely vintage condition with no obvious signs of any real wear, it looks and feels like a solid gold necklace. Rolled gold/gold fill is a bonded sleeve of solid gold over a metal core and it can withstand plenty of wear without loss to the gold, unlike electroplated gold which is basically a gold wash. Good rolled gold jewellery like this has all the look and feel of solid gold and with a little care the gold overlay can last a lifetime.
A beautiful heart locket and chain all round that's ready to wear right out of the box. It is a perfect size, ideal for daily wear and a would make a fabulous vintage jewellery gift for a loved one.
