Vintage 9kt + Handblown Glass "Evil Eye" Caged Ball Pendant
Belief in the evil eye dates back to classical antiquity and beliefs have always varied across different regions and periods. Today, many cultures and individuals wear, own, or carry talismans to ward off the curse of the evil eye. The symbol was sometimes incorporated into jewelry, allowing the wearer to always be protected.
A wonderful Vintage pendant depicting the classic evil eye symbol! Crafted in 9kt rose gold, this 3-dimensional piece features three white glass "eyeballs," each featuring a blue iris and black pupil. Lightly scalloped bezels hold the glass eyes in place, and sets of three light blue glass cabochons separate the eyes. A scalloped round cap decorates the bottom and top of the piece, and a bail readies the charm for a favorite necklace chain or bracelet. Whether worn on a favorite chain or charm bracelet, this unique and fabulous "evil eye" pendant would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 7/8" long (including the bail at the top), and measures approximately 19/32" in diameter.
Condition: The pendant is overall in good vintage condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the rose gold setting and the split ring bail is secure and in good working order. All of the other glass beads and eyeballs are intact and securely set.
