As much as we love traditional engagement rings, we love the ideas people have when it comes to using something a little more alternative for their proposal. This vintage gold opening heart locket charm would make a fabulous choice if your other half is a lover or charms rather than rings! It opens up to reveal a tiny gold ring inside with a faux diamond stone.
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks on the back for the maker 'G&T.J', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'O' for 1969. The heart is wonderfully detailing throughout, from open work flower detailing to the front, tiny heart shaped cut out detailing to the sides and a heart shaped pattern to the back too! The ring inside is held inside the heart by a small ring at the top so it has some lovely movement to it.
The charm is a lovely weighty piece, weighing approx 4.7g and measures approx 19.4mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 16.3mm wide by approx 6.8mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some signs of age, including some light surface wear to the gold and wear to the faux diamond stone on the ring inside. The hinge mechanism is a little loose with age but the charm still clicks closed. The jump ring is currently pushed 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. The chain is available in our online shop separately here.*
