Victorian Gate Bracelet with Turquoise Heart Locket Clasp

A splendid, and quite early, Victorian bracelet composed of thick, deeply engraved nautical style links alternating with sections of interlocking round faceted links. The bracelet is secured with a charming, and beautifully hand engraved, turquoise-set heart shape clasp with an open locket compartment on the reverse, which currently displays a daguerreotype of a dearly departed gent from long ago. This endearing and enduring antique treasure, crafted in 8 karat gold, measures 8 1/2 inches. Circa mid-to-late 1800s. BTW - these bracelets are sometimes referred to as 'Gate Bracelets" because they resemble the locks and chains which secured front gates.
