A wonderful gold photo locket from the Retro (ca1940) era! Made of 14kt yellow gold, this unique locket has a photo album design that opens to reveal a hinged gold page in between the two covers. The front and back of the locket are decorated with a textured, ridged design that fans out from the side and is framed by a smooth gold border. Transferred on the inside pages of the locket are 4 black and white family photographs, which could be left to preserve the historical appeal of the piece or replaced with new pictures. The locket fastens shut with a hinged arrow shaped clasp, which is detailed with 4 deep blue sapphires. The clasp folds over the front of the book, holding the pages in place and at the top is a gold loop, allowing the locket to be worn on a chain. Its a lovely keepsake piece that serves as a fantastic example of Retro fashion!
Measurements: The locket hangs 1 1/16" long, is 7/8" wide and slightly more than 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the locket is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold or to the sapphire stones, all of which are intact. The clasp and movable pages are secure and in good working condition.
