Whether you know them as ladybirds or ladybugs, we can't help but love to spot these colourful creatures in our garden! They are considered by many to be symbols of good luck, with some people even believing that the number of spots predicting how many years of good luck you'll have if they land on you!
We love the vibrant red and black enamel on this ladybird charm, it really makes her pop against the gold leaf.
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold with British hallmarks on the back for the maker 'FM', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'q' for 1971.
The charm measures approx 19.2mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 10.9mm wide by approx 3.6mm deep and weighs approx 1.3g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but the enamel is worn and a little chipped in places. 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.*
