This 14 Kt gold heart locket must have been a very special Love Token gifted around the turn of the century. It is in excellent condition, but what makes it a standout is that it is larger than most and has a sparkling old mine cut diamond set into a hand-carved star.
The inside on this one is as pretty as the outside. The photo frame inserts are completely intact, with a lovely blue silk backing. The locket opens and closes securely with a nice snap.
It is a very versatile piece that wold look elegant on a delicate gold chain or chic and modern on a chunky silver watch chain. If you like to see a video of the locket in the hand to get a sense for size, please visit us on Instagram.
