Vintage Large 14kt Ruby & Sapphire "Happy Birthday" Charm
A wonderful 14kt gold vintage charm from the 1950s! This celebratory piece carries the shape of a large flat disc with a charming birthday cake in the center. The raised design depicts a cupcake with a single candle and lit flame. Decorative accents include cutout shapes at the base, and a trio of gemstones lining the edge (including two rubies and a sapphire). The words "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" and two stars surround the cupcake within a textured engine-turned pattern. Completing the design is a spiraled gold rope that hugs the outside of the charm. The piece hangs from a simple gold ring 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. A fun and whimsical piece, it would make a creative birthday gift for any vintage charm collector!
Measurements: The pendant hangs 1 1/2" long, has a 1 1/8" diameter, and measures about 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, engine-turned pattern, or raised detail. All three gemstones are intact and secure in their prong setting. The gold jump ring for hanging is secure.
