The perfect charm to symbolise your love story (or stories!) or perhaps a sweet wearable reminder that you're yet to write your own love story!
This early vintage gold book charm is made of 9ct gold and is marked '9ct' to the back. There is the loveliest engraved detailing to both the front and back cover, the spine and the page edges too. The charm measures approx 15.2mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 11mm wide by approx 3.5mm deep and weighs approx 1.3g in total. The charm is hollow in the middle. Without a date hallmark it's hard to date exactly, but due to its style and the type of gold mark we think the charm likely dates to around the 1950s.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age and wear, including some surface wear and light scratches to the gold. There looks to be the faintest engraving to the back cover of the book near the top right hand corner. We can't make it out but it looks to be some letters and numbers, perhaps a link to the original owner's love story! The jump ring is currently pushed closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
