Edwardian Heart Padlock Necklace


The heart-shaped padlock clasp was exceedingly popular in the late 19th century and into the Edwardian era. This 9k gold heart is a classic example of the style, which was primarily used as a closure on sweetheart bracelets. We've added an 18" gold chain to make this pristine antique clasp into a wearable necklace.
