Here's a gorgeous charm that's perfect for a night owl. As the nights draw in quicker as we come up to Halloween, we love to see owls taking advantage of these longer nights. The charm is incredibly detailed throughout and has been very well made. It isn't solid, but given that it weighs over 5g you would believe it is at first glance and just look at those beautiful pink ruby eyes!
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks to one side for 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'h' for 1972.
The charm has lovely detailing throughout and is a heavy charm, weighing approx 5.3g. The charm measures approx 21.4mm tall (not including the jump ring) by 8.7mm wide by 10.8mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age including some light surface wear to the gold. The ruby eyes also show signs of age and wear, one of the rubies has a chip to it but this isn't too noticeable unless closely inspecting the charm. There are two small air holes to the base of the owl and also some very faint hand scratched marks which could possibly be old stock marks. The jump ring is currently soldered closed and is also marked for 9ct gold. 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*
