Victorian 14kt Rose Gold Padlock + Skeleton Key Pendant
A lovely padlock and key pendant from the Victorian era (ca1880)! This stylish piece is crafted in 14kt rose gold, and forms the shape of a miniature padlock, accented with a delicate key charm. The padlock displays a smoothly polished curved band at the center of a lovely textured surface on the front, while the other side is left smooth. A keyhole cutout adorns the bottom of the pendant, and a delicate skeleton key dangles off the side of the curved handle, adding wonderful movement to the design. Attached at the top is a simple round bail, perfect for hanging from a favorite chain. Although the padlock is decorated with a keyhole and key, the padlock handle does not open, with or without the use of the key. This stylish piece blends perfectly into modern day fashion, and would look wonderful worn alone or paired with other complementary pendants!
Measurements: The padlock pendant hangs approximately 1 3/8" long, is 1" wide (including the key), and a little more than 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the rose gold setting. The bail and secure and in good working order.
