A striking antique 9ct Gold masonic ball pendant! Masonic ball pendants were originally worn around the neck during the 19th century, a discreet way to pay homage to the freemasons. 

On first glance, this piece appears simple and spherical, but it opens up to form a cross, covered with an array of symbols! This piece of Victorian jewellery is sure to be a talking point.

Condition:

VERY GOOD. This antique 9ct Gold masonic ball pendant is in very good condition. The sphere has kept its shape perfectly, and it remains securely closed through the bale. Once opened, this piece reveals an array of symbols, all etched into the piece individually. There are a few signs of wear to the piece, particularly the base of the piece when closed, but this doesn't affect the structural integrity of the piece. We think this is an interesting pendant to say the least!
