Wow! This is a lovely rare antique 9ct Gold Masonic orb pendant. Composed of a rosy, smooth 9ct Gold on its outside, the orb opens up to reveal a cross shape with a Sterling Silver interior. What a versatile beauty!

Inside this  Edwardian pendant are six pyramid shapes with four hand engraved symbols on each. Characteristic of a Masonic orb, these details were delicately etched in by skilled craftsmen during the Edwardian era. The result is an intricate, totally unique pendant which exudes antique charm.

We love to imagine the secrets that these hieroglyphic-like markings held. Her settings all move independently, which is a sure sign that she is antique! Contemporary versions do not include this feature.
