The birthstone for November, citrine can't help but also make us think of warm summer evenings when the sun is setting, casting a lovely orange glow. This vintage gold and citrine charm would make a lovely birthstone piece!
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold (tested, but the ring at the top that the jump ring connects to does look to have once been hallmarked but these marks are no longer legible). The charm measures approx 16.4mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 11mm wide and weighs approx 1.6g. The charm came from a vintage gold charm bracelet with other charms that dated to the 1950s and 1960s so we believe it's liekly from around this time too.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold and citrine. There is a small chip to the front, left hand side of the citrine just near where the setting meets. The stone also has wear to the facets and some slight nibbling visible on close inspection. The jump ring is currently pushed closed and is a little worn in places. 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.*
