A wonderful 14kt gold scrapbook charm from the Retro (ca1940's) era! This fantastic piece is made of vibrant 14kt yellow gold and forms the shape of a miniature book. The book, which is movable, is spiral bound and can be opened to reveal 14kt gold pages that turn, and fasten shut with a small clasp on the righthand side. The front cover is engraved with the words "This is our Life" in a flowing cursive script. Below the engraving, the cover is adorned with two, raised gold hearts which are accented with a sapphire and ruby stone. The cover is also detailed with a scalloped design all around the edges. Inside the book, each page is engraved with a title, and features blank space below where a custom engraving can be made. The page titles include: "SPECIAL EVENTS," "PLACES I'VE BEEN," "MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE (HER, HIM, DATE)," and "OUR CHILDREN." The charm hangs from a gold jump ring that is attached to the spiral binding on the the top lefthand corner. A lovely keepsake piece, it would make a wonderful gift for a special someone!
Measurements: The charm measures slightly more than 1" wide, approximately 7/8" tall, and 1/8" at its thickest point. When worn, the pendant hangs approximately 1 1/2" long at a diagonal slant.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold, or to the sapphire or ruby stones, both of which are intact. The pendant opens and closes securely and is in good working condition.
