Vintage 14kt Large "Merry Christmas" Ruby + Emerald Charm/Pendant
A wonderful Vintage charm/pendant from year 1962! This sentimental piece is crafted of 14kt yellow gold and is quite substantial in size. The design carries the shape of a large open gold disc with a charming 3-dimensional holiday-themed scene in the middle. The image of a quaint fireplace emerges from the center, complete with a wreath and candlesticks atop the mantel, two hanging stockings, textured "bricks" and two rubies and an emerald which depict the roaring "fire" at the floor of the firebox. An engine turned texture covers the surface of the gold ring and the words "MERRY CHRISTMAS" in a smoothly polished lettering frames the top and bottom of the whimsical scene. The back of the charm is stamped with a 14kt gold purity mark. A wonderful vintage piece with a heartfelt message, it would look perfect worn on a long gold chain or hanging from a favorite charm bracelet!
