Calling all Cancers, this vintage gold, diamond and ruby charm would be such a great zodiac piece to add to your jewellery box! Or perhaps you're not a Cancer but would like to symbolise a partner, family member, friend or pet that is. We love wearing pieces that symbolise the people we love!
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and is marked '9ct' to the back. Without further hallmarks, it's hard to date the charm exactly but we think it likely dates to the 1950s/60s. To the front, the charm is set with a small ruby and a small diamond, a lovely extra details and these could even represent birthstones too (diamonds are April's birthstone and rubies are July's birthstone).
The charm measures approx 15.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 15.3mm wide by approx 1.2mm deep and weighs approx 2g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold and gemstones. The jump ring is currently soldered closed and is a nice large size too (approx 7mm in diameter). it is a little worn in two places but still functions well. 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. The gold curb chain pictured is available separately in our online shop here unless already sold.*
