Heart-shaped Padlock Clasp Bracelet - Titanic Artifact: This charming Titanic artifact is a 9ct, yellow and rose gold curb-link bracelet. The bracelet and has a broken safety chain, but it is possible that the safety chain held a small key to unlock the padlock clasp. Based upon existing hallmarks, the bracelet clasp was made in Chester, England between 1907 and 1908. The heart-shaped padlock was fashionable in Victorian and Edwardian periods and could serve as a clasp, charm, or pendant.

    The safety chain did hold a small key. When this was given to a woman, the key was snipped off by her beau. She wore the bracelet locked on. It was twofold: as a symbol of their love and to show others that she was in a relationship. Kind of like an engagement ring would symbolize today.
