Vintage 18kt Turquoise Movable "Knight in Shining Armor" Pendant
This wonderful Vintage "Knight in Shining Armor" pendant from the 1960s has a creative design inspired by the middle ages! Crafted in 18kt yellow gold, this bold piece depicts a medieval knight's helmet, which has a movable design created in 3-dimensional detail. The helmet features gorgeous carved scrollwork throughout, adding dimension to the design and five vibrant turquoise stones line the knight's breastplate, contrasting beautifully against the yellow gold. The front of the realistic helmet has a hinged face, which can be raised up and down to reveal an open cutout inside. The interior of the helmet is hollow, with a flared base at the neck and shoulders, and a feathered headdress at the top. The pendant is attached to a substantial bail that has a "750" gold purity mark as well as "270 FI". A unique and stylish piece, it could be paired with other complementary pendants, or worn as a single statement hanging from your favorite chain!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 1 3/4" long at the center, including the bail attached to the top, and measures about 3/4" at its widest.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or the turquoise stones, which are intact and securely set. The movable face mask is secure and in good working order.
