Gold filled vintage locket. This round locket is beautifully designed with a weave pattern on the front and back. Accenting the front is a blank shield allowing for and initial to be engraved on it. The locket measures approximately 1-1/4 inches in diameter. To open the locket you push the top button, it opens easily and shuts securely. This almost looks like the “shell” of an old pocket watch, but my personal opinion is that it was always a locket. The locket does show tiny amounts of “gold discoloration” due to age.
