This exceptional piece of sweetheart jewelry marks one of the periods in our history where sentiments ran so high and the thoughts of keeping our loved ones close was foremost in us.
This beautiful gold filled mother of pearl locket is adorned with a domed enameled emblem of the United States Air Corps. Opening the locket to the interior, you will find 2 sides that will hold pictures of your dearest ones.
The locket measures 3/4" x 5/8" and is stamped on the finding attached to it 1/20 12K gold filled. The sections where the pictures are placed appear to have never been used as the plastic inserts and both backings are all there.
The locket hangs from a 17 1/2" chain with the original old spring closure and also marked 1/20 12K GF.
The emblem to me is very interesting in itself as it is dome shaped and the enameling is done in red(UNITED), white(STATES) and blue(AIR CORPS) as well as the center. The enamel appears to be in excellent vintage condition with none missing.
This is a wonderful piece of collectible historical jewelry.
