This vintage turquoise nugget charm/pendant can't help but make us think of crisp blue oceans. The colour is such a vibrant blue, it really pops against the gold fittings and would look lovely mixed in with other gold charms. It would also make a great birthstone piece for a December baby too!
The turquoise nugget has a lovely freeform shape where the matrix (the dark marks) can be seen throughout. These have occurred naturally when the turquoise was forming. The stone has been smoothed into a lovely, pebble like shape has been drilled down the middle so that a 9ct gold wire and jump ring (tested, it's unhallmarked) could be added to turn it into a wearable piece.
The turquoise measures approx 17.6mm tall (Approx 24.4mm tall including the bail) by approx 14.9mm wide by approx 4.8mm deep and the piece weighs approx 2.1g in total.
Condition - The turquoise is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age and wear, including some light surface wear to the stone. 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/pendant will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch. The antique gold chain pictured is available separately in our online shop here unless already sold.*
