Estate 14kt New York Yankees 1996 World Series Pendant
This fantastic and rare Estate pendant is a limited edition piece, which was issued in commemoration of the New York Yankees' 1996 World Series victory over the Atlanta Braves! These pendants were produced exclusively for the players' wives and staff members. The year 1996 marked not only the first Yankees World Championship in nearly twenty years, but also the start of another dynasty, as the team went on to win four World Championships in five years. The pendant is made of smooth 14K yellow gold and features 23 sparkling diamonds set within the team’s familiar “NY” logo. A large bezel set diamond rests in the center of the logo and delicate milgrained detail surrounds the letters. The logo sits atop a vivid blue enameled background and the words “WORLD CHAMPIONS 1996” appear along the perimeter in raised gold letters. The pendant hangs from a split gold bail and the back is stamped "14K" and "R". A fabulous commemorative piece, it would look great worn on a simple gold chain and would make a perfect addition to any New York Yankees collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs 1 1/4" long (including the bail), measures slightly more than 3/4" wide, and is 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or enameling and all of the diamonds are intact.
