A timeless classic, this antique rose gold heart padlock is such a versatile piece to add to your jewellery box. Often used as clasps for charm bracelets, these padlocks can also be added onto chains and worn as a pendant and you can even add charms to them and use them as charm holders too!
What we love about this padlock in particular is that it's been hand engraved to the front with a beautiful floral pattern making it a little more unusual than some of the plain rose gold ones we see.
The padlock is made of 9ct gold which has a lovely soft pink tone to it. It has a British hallmark for 9ct gold to the back, '9CT GOLD'. It also has the maker's mark 'W.J.S' too. As well as the pretty hand engraving to the front, the front also has lovely faux screw and keyhole detailing. The lever opens by pulling upwards and closes with a click so it is nice and secure when worn.
The padlock measures approx 23.9mm tall (including the ring on the top bar) by approx 16.2mm wide by approx 2.6mm deep and weighs approx 2.75g.
Condition - The padlock is in good antique condition with some surface wear to the gold throughout. The padlock closes with a click and stays closed when worn. There is some wear to the lever bar and it is now slightly misshapen but this does not affect the bar when closing. The bar can wiggle slightly from side to side at the hinge when open so it does need a little guidance to line up when closing. Please see photos.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the padlock will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
