The envelope has been beautifully decorated with some pretty engraving in the gold to the front and the back and there is a lovely coral gemstone at the centre set in a crimped setting. The envelope opens with two hinged doors and inside there are two small frames for two photographs. These frames can be slid out to add your own photo and hold in place well.
