Excellent. This antique Victorian 18ct gold Etruscan design large locket is in stunning condition. There is hardly a blemish to the metalwork leaving this antique piece of jewellery in a practically as new condition. The only imperfections to the locket are that one bead has a small hole and another has a pinprick hole. It is rare to find an item of this age in such a near perfect condition.
