This heart shaped vintage brass locket has tarnished with age to a wonderful, almost iridescent deep gold with tiny little age spots here and there. The brass has a wonderful, almost rosy sheen in certain lights.
Both the front and back of the locket is covered in a detailed and intricate chequerboard etching. The inside of the locket is inlaid with an amazing copper detail, with plenty of space for photographs or pictures.
At 45mm (just under two inches) at its widest points, this is a slightly oversized locket which is best suited to mid- and longer length chains.
The locket chain is made from vintage copper and is available in a choice of lengths. Please refer to my illustration for a better idea of how these lengths would look when worn.
