So lovely and rare, this antique French, gold shield locket is circa 1820. I personally love these lockets for their purity of design. The shield, symbolizing protection/love is especially wonderful. A similar shield locket can be found in the British Museum housing a lock of Marie Antoinette's hair.
This locket is a smaller, desirable scale . It measures 1 inch diameter X 2 inches from the top loop to the bottom of the padlock. It tests slightly under 18 karat gold. The chain is available separately and is a good match for design and color.
The padlock and key are original, also rare to find both intact. The padlock can open without the key as well. I usually remove the key from the chain and place it within the locket. It looks so unique worn that way.
It makes the perfect sentimental gift.
Love and protection though the centuries....
France, circa 1820
