Vintage 18kt "Always Loyal" Poodle Pendant
A lovely vintage pendant from the 1960s! This wonderful piece is made of 18kt yellow gold and carries the shape of a large open disc with a charming miniature poodle in the center.

A wonderful and sentimental piece, it is perfect for any dog lover or charm collector!
