We love searching for vintage and antique charms as you never know quite what you're going to find next. Just like this rare and unusual parachuting pearl!


We love how the pearl is suspended from the parachute so it moves when worn, and the parachute has been made three dimensionally too, such an intriguing touch! 


The charm is made out of 9ct gold, with the parachute having British hallmarks to the top for 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'm' for 1968. There is also a maker's mark but this is hard to make out clearly. 


The charm measures approx 24.3mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 12mm wide by approx 12.9mm deep and the charm weighs approx 0.85g in total.


Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear and a little tarnishing to the gold and pearl. 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*
