We love moving charms and this vintage 9ct gold and glass hourglass charm has sand inside that actually moves like a real hourglass. It's such a fun, wearable reminder that time is previous!
The charm has a 9ct gold frame which has British hallmarks for the maker IG, 9ct gold, London and the date letter b for 1957. The gold frame holds the glass hourglass that has orange sand inside.
The charm weighs approx 1.55g and measures approx 19.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 10mm wide by approx 9mm deep.
Condition - The charm does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold and glass. The colouring of the orange sand inside the hourglass has faded onto the glass casing over time, making it hard to see through the glass at the bottom. The glass hourglass turns within the frame but we believe this is how it was made. The sand still moves freely from top to bottom when the charm is moved. Please see photos for more details.
