Fantastic fun vintage 9ct yellow gold pendant charm of a heart shape box which opens to reveal a faux diamond paste engagement ring with English hallmarks dating it to the mid 1960's. This is a time when charm bracelets were very popular which again today have become very collectable. They can still be worn as a charm from a bracelet or in a new way as a pendant from a chain necklace.
The gold hallmark can be found to the size of the box, this is where you see a lion for the London assay office along with the date letter for the year 1965. The makers mark reads 'FM'. Good hinge to open & the box shuts securely, inside the paste stones of the ring are both present & in good order. Around the ring is material which does not fit completely please see the pictures, but as inside it does not detract.
Size including bale 2.3 x 1.5 x 1.0 cm or 0.9 x 0.6 x 0.4 inches.
Weight 5.1 grams or 3.18 penny weight.
