This gorgeous 9 karat gold-filled locket is a beautiful and romantic piece that you will absolutely love!
You will notice that both the front and back of the locket boast a wonderfully intricate hand-hammered design.
The front features bold, symmetrical points, accented by a background of delicate florals while the reverse shows a slightly larger design characterized by languid, textural ferns.
It is amazing to think that every single decorative mark was struck by hand. This piece truly is a brilliant example of craftsmanship.
The interior of the locket shows the reverse image of the design seen on the front and back of the locket.
These are a shiny silver color while the interior frames are pervaded by the same lustrous 9 karat gold-plated finish on the front.
There is a small piece of brown paper protecting the interior of the front cover, though it can be easily removed at the buyer's discretion.
A small bale and large loop at the top of the locket will give you (or your sweetheart) a number of options for wearing and displaying the piece.
You will notice that both sides of the exterior show some wear, finish-loss and minor surface scratching, as well as some age-expected oxidization.
However, this romantic locket remains in good vintage condition overall.
