Antique Victorian Solid 9k Gold Agate Chased Heart Locket Vinaigrette Pendant:
Nice antique 9K solid gold heart pendant/charm. This was acid tested very discreetly, and did start to fade at the 10K, so I am calling it 9K. There are no hallmarks on this, but I am guessing this is most likely of the english variety.
There is a lovely little agate, that opens up to expose a little compartment. I would assume you could place anything you want inside.
The topside is very secured once closed, has a good strong hinge on it. Beautiful design is chased both front and back. Nice fancy jump ring, I believe this may be Blue John agate, which is only located in one place in the world which is in the UK someplace.
Piece of agate has a diameter of 1/4" and is mostly white, but does have a bluish hue to it. The heart with bale is 3/4" long by 9/16" across with a thickness of 1/4" front to back. Has a weight of 1.45 grams.
Excellent antique condition. Will make a splendid addition to anyone's collection!
