Victorian 15kt Gold Padlock Heart Charm Necklace 23"
A stylish padlock charm necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in 15kt yellow gold, this romantic necklace is comprised of a heart shaped pendant which hangs from a complimentary chain. The smooth surface of the pendant is studded with four "screws" and finished with a realistic keyhole at the center. A looped handle at the top also functions as the clasp, and can be pulled opened and snapped into place using a lever on the side. A simple bail is attached at the top of the handle, allowing the pendant to hang from a modern 9kt yellow gold chain that fastens with a spring ring clasp at the back. The piece is stamped "15" at the top of the pendant and "375" on the spring ring clasp. A fabulous and stylish Victorian piece that blends seamlessly into modern day fashion, it would make a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: The chain measures 23" long. The padlock charm measures approximately 1" tall (including the bail), 5/8" wide, and 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The chain clasp is secure and in good working order.
