Here's what's inside box one of our 12 Days of Christmas (or Charm-mas if you will!) Advent Calendar... the ultimate Christmas charm - a vintage two tone gold Christmas tree with gemstone decorations! The charm is available at the special festive discounted price until we open box two at 6pm GMT on 2nd December 2022.
The charm is wonderfully detailed throughout and is made of 9ct gold. The tree itself is a lovely soft, warm 9ct yellow gold and the star and pot are made of 9ct white gold. The tree is decorated with emerald, sapphire and ruby baubles and there is a diamond set star at the top of the tree.
The charm has Britsh hallmarks on the bottom of the pot for 9ct gold, London. There is also a date letter hallmark but this is difficult to read fully due to the markings on the pot. We believe the charm likely dates to the 1960s, the 9ct gold hallmark dates it to pre-1975. The charm can even stand up on its own too!
The charm measures approx 19.2mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 17mm wide by approx 6.8mm deep and the charm weighs approx 1.95g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to the gold and gemstones. The jump ring is currently pushed closed. 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*
