'No grit, no pearl.' We like to think that this vintage gold opening shell charm is a perfect wearable reminder that sometimes life knocks you down and you have to endure some rough patches but these only make you a stronger more beautiful human being in the process! 


The charm has lovely detailing to both sides of the shell and opens to reveal a little  pearl inside too. 


The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks for 9ct gold, Birmingham and what looks to be the date letter 'V' for 1970. The charm weighs approx 1.7g and measures approx 11mm wide by approx 15mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 5mm deep when closed.


Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold and pearl. There is some glue visible inside the shell from when the pearl has been set. The hinge mechanism still works well and the charm clicks closed. The jump ring is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.


*Please note the chain and antique box pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
