This brooch from the tail end of the Victorian era is made in gold and set with seed pearls. The brooch is fashioned in the shape of a key with a pendant heart-shaped padlock. Sentimental pieces like this are called "key to my heart" jewelry. The message isn't particularly subtle, but isn't subtlety overrated when it comes to love? Comes in its box which isn't original to the brooch but is nonetheless lovely.
14k gold (tests), seed pearls
