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 both sides with a beautiful pattern making it a little more unusual than some of the others we've found before.
The padlock is made of 9ct rose gold which is a lovely soft pink tone. It is marked '9ct' to the back. As well as the pretty hand engraving to both sides, the front also has lovely faux screw and keyhole detailing. The lever opens by pulling upwards and closes with a click. The lever is quite stiff and so is nice and secure when worn.
The padlock measures approx 19.8mm tall by approx 13.2mm wide by approx by approx 3.4mm deep and weighs approx 1.7g.
Without full hallmarks, it's hard to date the padlock exactly but we believe due to its 9ct gold mark, style and materials it likely dates to the early 20th Century.
Condition - The padlock is in good antique condition with some surface wear to the gold throughout. The part of the top lever that sits inside the padlock is a little yellower in colour than the rest of the padlock. The lever is a little misshapen but this doesn't stop it opening and closing at all. The padlock closes with a click and stays closed when worn. 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.*
