This is a special locket. It has a deeply carved Floral design around the entire frame and even on the ring at the top. It is hinged on one side and deep enough to hold pictures, love poems and a lock of hair. It is hallmarked on the inside edge of the frame for 9k gold which was a popular fineness for lockets throughout the 19th century. The locket opens and closes perfectly, and the crystals on both sides are in good condition and all original. The locket is quite small and easy to wear.

Measurements: 1 3/8" x 1" not including the engraved ring at the top which measures 8.3mm.
