Edwardian 9ct Curb Bracelet & Heart Padlock


A classic solid curb link bracelet crafted in rose gold dating from the Edwardian era. The links are a uniformed size and sit wonderfully with one another. Not an uncommon bracelet in itself but the padlock is something a little bit different. Rather than the usually notched hasp that comes over the top of the padlock and doubles back on itself, locating within the main body of the clasp to secure it all together, this padlock uses a hinged clasp. To the right of the padlock you can see a small protrusion in the form of a little ball shape what allows the hinge to open. This is a far superior form of clasp in respect of manufacturing and I suspect the reason they are fairly rare is that they were far more expensive and time consuming to make.
