A unique pocket watch locket to hold your hopes and secrets.

The focal of this Steampunk inspired necklace is a vintage gold pocket watch case, 80-100 years old, a piece that is both intriguing and lovely. The case has lovely scrolled chasing or engraving both sides.

Inside the case I have placed a little vintage key with two charms attached - the first is a textured brass orb with inset faux pearls, very Gothic Revival in style, delicate and beautiful. The second is an Aragonite stone heart topped with antiqued brass - the stone is a buttery pale yellow veined with cream. Aragonite is said to be a stone of truth and understanding.

Forming a background for the key and charms is a scrap of antique embroidered linen.

This case has a secret device to open it! The 'winder crown' is not what it seems; it is a press button release to pop the front of the case open - an intriguing feature. Please note: the case has 2 hinges but just the one side opens, the other is firmly fixed shut to form the locket receptacle.

The piece can be added to with personal treasures and used as a very special locket.

Dimensions:
The pocket watch case/locket
- 1.65 inches diameter, .35 inches through (42mm diameter x 8mm). The snap closure is firm and strong, the worn case lovely to handle.
The chain
- The chain is a nice quality antiqued brass in a 3 x 4mm flat cable link 33.5 inches or 850mm long The opera length chain is a nice length with long line tops or worn over a shirt.
The key
- just 1.25 inch or 32mm long, a genuine vintage key from my personal collection.
The charms
- .4inch or 20mm long

NOTES: this case is old; there are minor indentations but they add to the beauty. The case is gold but I cannot find hallmarks. My very hi-tech analysis is that it polishes and smells like gold filled rather than brass.

Designed and handmade in New Zealand by Janne Perry the vintage & antique components of this necklace ensure that there will never be another quite the same.

The necklace will be delivered to the buyer in a handmade ClosetGothic felt envelope.
