This vintage gold orb and cross charm, also known as a Globus Cruciger, has such lovely detailing throughout. There are even some tiny little flecks of enamel present still!


Known as a symbol of Christianity, it is also seen as The Sovereign's Orb which is part of the Crown Jewels. We believe the enamel detail may have been more prominent when the charm was first made but it has now worn away quite a bit although there are some small areas of colour. 


The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold, with very faint british hallmarks to one side for 9ct gold, what looks to be the mark for London and what we think is the date letter 'h' for 1963. These hallmarks are now very hard to make out clearly.


The charm measures approx 23.2mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 12.9mm wide by approx 12.5mm deep and weighs approx 2.3g. The charm is detailed all the way around and hollow in the centre.


Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold. It doe shave some very small areas of enamel detail but the majority has now worn away. 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.*
