Vintage 9kt Glass "Evil Eye" Triple-Sided Charm 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 charm depicting the classic evil eye symbol! Crafted in 9kt rose gold, this 3-dimensional piece features a matching design on all three sides. A trio of white glass "eyeballs," each featuring a blue iris and black pupil, symmetrically embellish the sides of the pendant. Lightly scalloped bezels hold the glass eyes in place, and coiled wires line the spaces in between, adding wonderful texture to the design. A polished round cap decorates the bottom and top of the piece, where a simple bail rests, stamped "8" beside a faded "CB" hallmark. 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 charm/pendant hangs about 7/8" long (including the bail at the top), and measures approximately 1/2" wide and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the charm/pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the rose gold setting. All three glass eyeballs are intact and securely set, and are free of any chips or scratches.
