Known as a symbol of Ireland, we like to think this vintage Irish gold shamrock carries a little 'luck of the Irish' with it. Made of 9ct gold, the shamrock has three pieces of inlaid Irish Connemara green marble to highlight each heart-shaped leaf.
The charm has Irish hallmarks to the back for Dublin, 9ct gold and the date letter 'X' for 1965 and measures approx 21.8mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 18.5mm wide. The charm weighs approx 1.9g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some signs of age and wear. The marble pieces have some lines to them, it's hard to say if they are natural veins to the stone or if they are cracks but the stones are all secure. Both the marble pieces and gold do have surface wear, the hallmarks are now a little rubbed on the back of the charm but can be made out.The jump ring is currently pushed 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.*
