Vintage Large 14kt Amethyst + Pearl "Happy Birthday" Charm
A wonderful Vintage birthday charm from the 1960s era! This celebratory piece is crafted in 14kt yellow gold and carries the shape of a large flat disc. Set in the center, in a raised manner, is a blooming bouquet of flowers adorned with a trio of amethysts and a single faux pearl. The words "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" curve along the top and bottom frame, resting within a textured engine-turned pattern. Completing the design is a wavy line that encircles the outer border, mimicking the appearance of decorative birthday cake frosting. The piece hangs from a simple gold bail at the top, perfect for hanging from a chain or adding to a special charm bracelet. Stamped on the back is "14K" near the base, along with the hand engraved date "Jan. 25 - 1963". A fun and whimsical piece, it would make a creative birthday gift for any vintage charm collector!
Measurements: The pendant hangs a little longer than 1 1/4" long, has a 1" diameter, and measures about 1/8" thick.
Condition: The charm/pendant remains in overall good vintage condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, engine-turned pattern, or raised detail. All three gemstones are secure in their prong setting, however, there is some minor chipping along the edges of two stones. The gold jump ring for hanging is secure.
