I particularly love whimsical jewelry. This vintage solid gold charm does not disappoint! It depicts a dimensional little chick coming out of the egg. With lots of texture, the chick’s eyes are set with Persian Turquoise and the egg is set with tiny cabochons of Jade, Turquoise, Coral, and Rose Quartz against a brushed background.
This unique vintage gold charm or pendant measures 1 1/4″ tall including the ring on the top. The widest point is at the chick’s beak at 7/8″.
In excellent condition, unmarked, carefully tested. Overall approximate weight is 6.8 gram, it is hefty. Anonymous maker, perhaps even a custom made piece. Estimated to date from the 1950’s.
