The hand carved details on this locket are what really make it special! It was made around the turn of the century in rolled gold. Rolled gold is a form of gold plating used in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. It looks and wears just like rose gold, and can last for over 100 years, as exemplified here. The locket is in excellent condition, with all of it's original parts. The inside is ready for your own pictures to be placed behind glass. It measure 1 3/8 inches long and 7/8 inches wide. The chain is included and is 18 inches long. We are happy to replace it with a chain of your choice.
