This stylish charm necklace is a Vintage compilation piece! Crafted in 14kt and 9kt gold, the necklace consists of two delicate charms that have been paired together on a complimentary fine chain. One of the charms is a miniature padlock heart; the other, a delicate skeleton key. The padlock heart is crafted in 9kt yellow gold and includes a curved handle, a cutout keyhole center, and four screw heads engraved into the surface. Accompanying the padlock is the small gold key which is crafted in 14kt yellow gold, the perfect compliment! Both charms hang from small gold loops soldered at the top. The gold chain fastens with a spring ring clasp at the back. Stamped on the side of the skeleton key handle is "B 14K." The back of the padlock heart is stamped "LC," "375," and is marked with a few English hallmarks. A charming compilation piece, it merges effortlessly into modern fashion, and would make a perfect everyday accessory!
Measurements: The chain measures 18" long. The padlock heart charm measures 1/2" tall, 3/8" wide, and 1/8" thick. The skeleton key charm measures 3/4" long, 1/4" wide across the handle, and 1/16" thick.
Condition: The necklace is in excellent overall condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold chain or to either of the gold charms. The padlock heart is purely decorative and does not function as a working padlock. The accompanying skeleton key is also decorative and is not designed to fit the padlock's keyhole.
