Here's our sixth piece in our 12 Days of Christmas Advent, available at a discounted price for just one day on 6th December... a vintage 9ct gold and glass man in the moon pendant.
A design that's been popular for centuries and is still popular today, this beautifully detailed vintage man in the moon pendant is beautifully detailed on both sides with two faces made from glass. The glass has an iridescent sheen, so it looks slightly different shades of blues and purples as the light catches it.
The moon faces are set in 9ct gold - the gold is marked '9c' on the edge and the edges of the gold have tiny scallop detailing to them.
The pendant measures approx 15mm in diameter and is approx 10mm deep at its deepest point (nose to nose). It weighs approx 3.3g.
Condition - The pendant is in good vintage condition but it does show signs of age and wear. The glass shows signs of surface wear up close and it does have some small darker marks in places. We've given the piece a gentle clean to remove what we can but some marks are still visible. The gold around the edge is marked in places, from wear and what look like previous gold tests. There is also solder marks from where the jump ring has been attached. Please see photos for more detail.
*Please note the antique box and chain pictured are not included in the sale*
