This beautifully detailed 9 kt gold locket is solidly constructed. It features clear stones for horse shoe nails, in the Lucky Seven pattern common in 19th C pieces. The shoe is “upside down” to allow Good Luck to wash over the person wearing it. This was the common style up to 1950, when the trend changed to horse shoes pointing upwards. 

It is unmarked, but tests as 9 kt heavy gold clad. Most antique gold lockets are clad over a stronger, interior metal to give them the heft to withstand being opened & closed frequently. 

This locket probably dates from 1875-1920. The hinge & clasp are in excellent condition. All it needs is your mementos! It would make a stunning necklace pendant or could be added to a charm bracelet or watch chain. It measures 1” x 3/4”, and is approximately 1/4” thick.
