Charming Gold Antique Diamond Heart Locket and Chain

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This lovely locket displays the sought-after gold patina that's so desirable in an antique piece. The gold is warm and rich in color, and is perfectly complemented by the old mine cut diamond (about .10 carat) twinkling in the center. Slight pressure on a thumbnail groove opens the heart to reveal space for two mementos: locks of hair, photos, or whatever fits in that reminds you of your beloved. The bale is stamped 18ct, and the chain is stamped 750 (indicating18 karat). The necklace measures 18" in length, and the heart measures 1/2" by 3/4".
