This antique heart shaped locket is such a sweet piece. The front is decorated with a a turquoise cabochon and the back of the heart has a circular glass locket compartment. Often, these locket compartments were kept to the back so that they were hidden from view when worn and kept the token held inside closer to the wearer's heart. 


The locket is made of 15ct gold, unhallmarked but tested, and the jump ring is made of 9ct gold. Without hallmarks, it's hard to date the locket exactly but we believe it's most likely Victorian in age, circa late 19th Century.


The heart measures approx 13.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 10.6mm wide by approx 6.9mm deep and weighs approx 0.95g


Condition - the heart is in good antique condition but does show signs of age and wear including surface wear to the gold, turquoise and glass. The locket compartment isn't hinged so we think it would likely require a jeweller to open if required. It looks to currently hold a small piece of fabric or woven hair. Please see photos.


*Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the pendant will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
