Vintage 9CT Rose Gold Back & Front Oval Picture Locket - Chased Scrolls - 2.5 Grams #c966
Lockets like this one are known as a back and front lockets because fine gold was applied to the fronts and backs over a base metal structure. Since lockets were made to be opened and closed repeatedly, this provided added strength to the piece while the outer portion of the locket retained a fine gold appearance.

This pretty vintage "back and front" locket is constructed of fine 9CT (9K) rose gold and metal fittings. It is oval in shape with beautiful chased or engraved designs across its upper half. The rest of the locket is blank for the addition of an initial or monogram. The locket opens on the right side and has a small indentation for ease of opening. When opened, the locket reveals two pockets for adding photos or other mementos. Each pocket has a red inner paper lining, an oval plastic piece and an open oval frame that snaps in to hold them in place. The locket does not "click" shut, but it closes firmly and stays closed. It's very sturdy and well made. It's absolutely charming!

The locket measures about 3/4 inch long, 9/16 inch wide and weighs 2.5 grams. It is signed "9CT Back & Front" and "Metal Fittings" on the back of the locket.

This locket is a lovely piece! It would make a wonderful gift for that special lady in your life! Making it even more special is the possibility of personalizing it with initials, a monogram or perhaps the words "I love you" on the blank portion of the locket face. The locket is in good vintage condition. It has normal surface scratches and some indentations from previous use. The inner portion of the locket does have finish wear and patina from age and the ring attached to the bail is yellow gold. It has been priced accordingly.
