A Victorian locket with a 'bloomed' matte gold finish, round in shape and minimal in appearance. The warms soft sheen on the old gold is beautiful to see and lovely to handle.
In lavaliere style, the locket is suspended from a little hook on a length of decorative antique chain. A sweet little moonstone bead on one link adds a pretty touch.

Condition: Very good. Minimal surface wear as per the photographs and soft indentation in the 10 o'clock position (barely there and impossible to pick up in images; the locket price reflects this), The inside has a some age spotting - please see images. The locket closes with a nice snap and the fantastic integral hinge is working perfectly.
