We love finding celestial charms and this antique gold and seed pearl star charm is such a lovely one!
We love the slightly elongated, unsual shape of this antique star charm. We believe it likely started life as an antique stick pin and has been converted at some point in time into this wonderful charm. The front is studded with ten seed pearls too.
The charm is made of 15ct yellow gold, unhallmarked but tested. Without hallmarks, it's hard to date the charm exactly but we think the star was likely an antique Victorian stick pin originally so is circa 1890s.
The charm measures approx 20.6mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 13mm wide and weighs approx 0.85g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good antique condition with some light surface wear to the gold and seed pearls. There is a faint mark to the back of the charm which we think is likely where the stick pin connected. The jump ring is currently pushed closed and is a newer 9ct gold addition. Please see photos.
*Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
