This vintage gold front and back locket has such lovely, star like detailing to the front. The way it catches the light is almost mesmerizing too! The locket is made of 9ct gold to the outer front and back panels and the inner is made of base metal. This was a clever technique used to keep lockets affordable (solid gold lockets require a lot more gold to be made and so are much pricier) and also nice and sturdy too. The locket has lovely detailing to the front panel that really cathes the light when it moves, we can't help but think of a starry night sky when we look at it. The locket is marked '9ct BK FT)' to the back panel which is plain in design and inside there it is ready for your photos to be added to each side. The metal frames pull out and there are also two plastic windows to protect your photos when inside too. The locket measures approx 21mm in diameter (not including the fittings at the top) and is approx 4mm deep. It weighs approx 4.4g in total. It's hard to date the locket exactly without a date hallmark or maker's mark but we believe it's likely mid 20th Century in age. Condition - The locket is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to the gold to both the front and back. The locket still opens and closes well and it clicks closed to stay closed when worn. The gold jump ring is currently pushed closed. Please see photos. *Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the locket will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch. If you would like a gold chain similar to the one pictured sourcing for you to go with the locket we can do this too, just get in touch via email if you'd like further details on pricing* .
