Victorian Coral Padlock Heart Charm with Hair Compartment in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A small, ornately-carved, Victorian era charm that takes the form of a heart-shaped padlock. This charm is double sided— one side is set with a clear crystal that protects a casually braided strand of brown hair; the other is set with a carved piece of orange-red precious coral. The coral is carved to resemble the face of a rose. This is a functioning padlock, so it can be worn as a clasp with a link bracelet, or as a pendant, hung from a chain. The central chamber can be popped out of the heart frame, by a competent jeweler. Metal is 14k gold.
