Said to promote vitality and restore motivation, carnelian is believed to stimuate creativeity. This vintage gold talon charm is grasping a carnelian orb which is a beautiful deep orange shade.
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold (tested as it's unhallmarked) and has such wonderful detailing to the talon throughout. The charm measures approx 20mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 12.1mm wide by approx 13.4mm deep and weighs approx 3.75g. The carnelian orb measures approx 10.1mm in diameter.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some light signs of age and wear, including light surface wear to the gold and carnelian. The jump ring is currently sealed closed and is a little worn in places. The carnelian orb moves freely within the talon which we believe is how it was made.
