A fabulous antique French, solid 14 carat gold locket brooch.

It dates from around 1770 and is in very good, fully wearable condition, with scratches to the glass.Originally a bracelet or choker clasp, its pin fittings are very old replacements. It weighs 10.2 grams and measures 1.25 x 0.75 inches. The final photo shows it with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter.
