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 ring 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 vein like marks) can be seen throughout. These have occurred naturally when the turquoise was forming. The stone has been polished so it has a smooth surface and has been drilled at one end so that a 9ct yellow gold bail (tested, it's unhallmarked) could be added to turn it into a wearable piece.
The turquoise measures approx 19.4mm tall (Approx 23.4mm tall including the bail) by approx 13.3mm wide by approx 13.9mm deep and the piece weighs approx 3g 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 where the gold bail has rubbed a little. 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*
