'No grit, no pearl.' We like to think that this vintage gold shell and pearl 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 is set with a little  pearl inside too. 


The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks to one side for the maker 'WHC', 9ct gold, Birmingham and the date letter 'X' for 1972. The charm weighs approx 1.15g and measures approx 12mm wide by approx 13.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 5.5mm deep.


Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold and pearl. There is a small amount of glue visible inside near the pearl from when it has been set. 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*
