CARTIER 18kt Wood + Diamond Toucher du Bois "Knock on Wood" Charm Pendant
A stylish and lucky vintage pendant signed by the legendary fashion house Cartier! In French, "toucher du bois" translates to "knock on wood," the lucky verbal testament one says when good luck is needed. This unique piece features a rectangular shaped wood plaque with 18kt white gold accents. The wood displays a rich, deep ebony color, creating a perfect contrasting background for the sparkling accent diamond that decorates the base. A polished plaque caps the bottom, and stamped underneath is the authentic "Cartier ©" signature hallmark and "750" gold purity mark. A wide cap at the top is attached to a hinged bail, which is stamped with various markings, including two French hallmarks beside a patent number "CN4601." A lucky and clever everyday piece, it would look perfect worn on a favorite chain, or paired with other fabulous charms!
Measurements: The piece hangs a little more than 1 1/4" long (including the bail at the top), measures a little more than 1/4" wide, and is a little less than 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the wood or white gold surface. The diamond is intact and securely set. The bail and hinge is secure and in good working order.
