This is a fabulous Victorian era nautical locket adorned with turquoise and seed pearls. It is in very good condition for it's age. The back of the locket has a few dings from use but I don't see any wear through in the gold plating. The locket also has the original glass crystal with a beveled edge. The fob chain has three different styles of links and shows only minor wear to a few links on the gold plated finish. The slide on the fob chain is pristine, showing minimal wear for it's age.
