Retro Large Gold Heart Locket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This 18 karat gold Retro heart locket is unusual in two ways. It is larger than most at 2 inches in length and width and it opens to four compartments rather than the usual two. The back has a rectangular plaque that can be engraved. Textured lines on both front and back allow it to catch the light and show nice dimensionality.
