Said to be a natural tranquiliser, amethyst is believed to calm anxiety, alleviate sadness and help remove negativity. This vintage gold talon charm is grasping an amethyst orb which is a beautiful deep purple shade with natural inclusions of white in places. We can't help but think it has a slightly spooky vibe to it too, perfect for Halloween!


The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold with British hallmarks for 9ct gold, Birmingham. There is a date letter that looks to be 'V' for 1970 but it is very hard to make out clearly. 


There is such wonderful detailing to the talon throughout. The charm measures approx 26.2mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 15.7mm wide by approx 15mm deep and weighs approx 6.8g. The amethyst orb measures approx 12mm in diameter.


Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some light signs of age and wear, including light surface wear to the gold and amethyst. The jump ring is currently sealed pushed. The orb moves a little within the talon which we believe is how it was made.


*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.*
