Vintage 14kt Sapphire, Ruby & Pearl Sagittarius Pendant
A very unique Zodiac-inspired Vintage pendant from the 1950s! This fabulous piece is made of 14kt yellow gold and is very large with a creative three-dimensional design. Three large open rings overlap to form the frame of the pendant, and a gold figure rests inside, surrounded by shimmery white pearls, two sapphire stones, and a luscious ruby. The figure is Sagittarius, a centaur (half-horse and half-human mythological creature) that is symbolized as an archer. Sagittarius represents the 9th astrological sign of the Zodiac. In the pendant, the centaur is shown with long flowing hair and a bow and arrow, poised as though prepared to shoot. At the top of the piece is a simple gold bail, making it easy to hang and wear from a gold chain or charm bracelet. The back is stamped "14K". A fun and colorful piece, it would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs 1 3/4" long, has a 1 3/8" diameter, and a depth of 1/2" at its thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold or to any of the pearls or stones, all of which are intact.
