A dainty pearl station chain padlock heart sterling necklace measuring 16 inches end to end. The padlock charm is fully functional but you do not have to use it as the clasp because there is a spring ring clasp on the opposite side.
The chain segments are made of long and short links connected by wire wrapped freshwater pearl stations. The necklace is handmade and not mass-produced.
The pearls are baroque, slightly oval, and 1/4 inch at the widest point. They have a lovely orient (color play on the surface), good nacre, and are a lovely pure white.
The necklace weighs approximately 6.1 grams. It is marked LC and 925 on the heart padlock charm and 925 and STG for sterling on the spring ring clasp.
The condition is excellent, there is a slight patina overall that enhances the details.
Pearls are the birthstone for June.
