A timeless classic, this vintage gold opening heart padlock can be used as a bracelet/necklace clasp or it can be locked directly onto a chain to wear as a pendant too!


The padlock is shaped like a heart with a faux keyhole and screw detailing to the front. The top lever opens by pulling it upwards and it closes with a click. 


The padlock is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks on the back for the maker 'RGS', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'n' for 1968. 


The padlock measures approx 19.8mm tall by approx 14.4mm wide by approx 2.6mm deep and the charm weighs approx 1.75g in total.


Condition - The padlock is in good vintage condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold. The front does have some surface scratches to it. These are more noticeable at certain angles depending on how the light reflects on the gold. The lever mechanism still works well and clicks closed. Please see photos. 


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