Marriage Vow Stanhope 9k Gold Church Pendant Charm Vintage c1970 English.
Fantastic 9ct yellow gold pendant or charm in the shape of a church which opens to reveal an enameled Bride & Groom being married with the additional charming feature of a stanhope containing the marriage vows.
During this time charm bracelets were very popular & again today these little works of art have become very collectable being worn traditionally as a charm from a bracelet or with a modern twist as a pendant from a necklace.
The English gold hallmark can be found to the inside, however the mark is tiny & I can read it. Good hinge to open & shuts securely. Inside is an enamel couple being married, some loss of enamel see pictures. To the church tower you find a little lens to look through, hold to the light & you will see the marriage vows however there are cracks to the lens.
