This sweet antique gold, turquoise and seed pearl flower charm would make a lovely piece for for someone who's green fingered, perhaps a gardener or florist! We love that it could also be a birthstone piece for a December or June babe too.
The charm is made of 15ct yellow gold, marked '15ct' to the reverse. The flower is made up of four turquosie cabochons that vary in shades of blues and greens and the leaves are made up of little seed pearls. All of the stones are in closed back settings.
The charm measures approx 22.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 13.5mm wide by approx 3.6mm deep and weighs approx 1.55g. The two circles of the charm are hollow in the middle.
Without further hallmarks, it's hard to date the charm exactly but we think it's likely late Victorian/early 20th Century in age, circa 1890-1910.
Condition - The charm is in good antique condition but does show signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to the gold and stones. The circle borders do have some small indents to them in places. The turquoise stones vary in colour and the 15ct gold mark to the back is now a little worn. The jump ring is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
