An absolutely lovely and unusual "key to my heart" locket pendant from the late Retro (ca1940-1950's) era! This wonderful piece is made of 14kt gold and is fairly large in size. It portrays a double sided heart shaped locket that has a key bottom. The 14kt yellow gold heart is slightly puffy and each side opens to reveal 2 round, framed places for your favorite photos. The key bottom is made of what appears to be an actual key and completes the "key to my heart" design. The locket pendant hangs from a simple gold bail and the inside is stamped "14K" and "D-147.037". It's a wonderful and unusual piece and would make a lovely addition to any collection!
Measurements: The locket pendant hangs approximately 2 3/8" long. The heart locket measures 1" tall, 7/8" at the widest point and 3/8" thick. The bail measures a little less than 1/4" tall and 1/8" at the widest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the locket is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold heart or key. Both sides of the locket move easily and stay securely closed.
