The solid gold chain is hallmarked 375 and is 41cm or 16 long with a bolt ring clasp A very lovely pink rose gold. This chain is the perfect length to display the locket.. I have a bit of a chunky neck from age but looks fabulous on. Please take time to view all the photos , i tried to show its SHEER BEAUTY..But as it was so bright outside it looks so yellow on the pink background.. The locket is Circa 1900 by design and styling and is from USA. Very common for these times as gold was scarce even back then..
And not affordable to the normal folk.. So this would have belonged to someone of high standing.. Anything not visible in Victorian jewellery was either gilt or gold filled.. The chain is vintage and is Australian 9ct gold , and for my American customers 9ct wears just like 10k gold.THESE ARE EXTREMELY RARE IN THIS LARGER SIZE. It has both its rose gold bezels and beautiful antique photos inside of what looks like a western man and a child... It is engraved in Olde Worlde Script on the back which i cant decipher it could be FEN or TED the other way looks. As so ornate and just looks like a design but i ADORE these as you know they have a history. If you were ever looking for a romantic PUFFY HEART locket this is the one!
And the chain is solid gold. 10-15 HOURS MONDAY TO FRIDAY CLOSED ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. Please note that while I do try to describe the items to the very best of my ability, all my items are either antique or vintage , so therefore are not brand new. All items will normally have some light wear commensurate with age.
However ONLY if the item has been grossly misrepresented.. We will however allow extra time for international. We do report all we see but we are only human and may miss some slight mark or flaw or imperfection as i sell antique or vintage... So the photos ALSO form part of the description.
