Vintage 18kt Gold Oyster Shell & Pearl Pendant
A charming and creative Vintage oyster shell pendant from the 1970s! This wonderful sea-inspired piece has a fun and decorative design crafted in vibrant 18kt yellow gold. Fairly large in size, the pendant takes form in a three-dimensional oyster shell, which is propped open at its bottom edge by a shimmery white pearl. The outside surface of the shell has textured detail and is accented by a twisted gold rope design that winds around a series of gold balls. Resting in the middle of the shell on both sides is an additional lustrous white pearl, completing the unique design. Stamped at the top of the pendant is "18K". The pendant hangs from a simple yellow gold jump ring at the top, making it easy to wear from a favorite gold chain. A fun and unique Vintage piece, it would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs 1 5/8" long, measures 1 1/8" wide, and is 3/4" thick. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 8.7 dwt.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or to any of the pearls, all of which are intact. The bail is secure and in good working condition.
