If Autumn is your favourite season, then this vintage gold acorn charm could be the perfect piece for you! We love how it instantly makes us think of the changing leaves and finding acorns and chesnuts on cosy walks, all wrapped up. We think the charm also beautifully symbolises the proverb 'mighty oaks from little acorns grow'. Symbolising potential and growth, this charm would make a really lovely symbolic piece if you're perhaps starting a new chapter in your life.
What's more, the acorn also opens up to reveal a tiny gold squirrel hiding inside too!
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks on one side for the maker 'S P', 9ct gold, Birmingham and the date letter 'W' for 1971.
The charm has beautiful detailing throughout and weighs approx 3.1g. It measures approx 17.4mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 11.3mm wide by approx 10.5mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear including some light surface wear to the gold.The hinge mechanism still works well and the charm does click closed but there is a little movement to the acorn top when closed and a small gap can show between the two. The jump ring is currently pushed closed.
*Please note the antique box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
