This exceptional rare antique heart charm pendant is a genuine Victorian piece, circa 1850, and made with intense skill and care. Both the heart and the pretty bale is set with beautiful faceted Marcasite gems to the front, and to the back, you'll reveal a highly polished Silver domed shape that catches the light beautifully.
This little heart has been adorned with 12 individually cut and hand-set Marcasites that sparkle with an edgy gun-metal grey colour.
It looks stunning worn on a simple Silver chain or velvet as a necklace or could be fitted to a cherished charm bracelet.
It's a fairly dainty size which makes it extremely versatile, and can be worn day or night to the delight of all! What she lacks in size she makes up for in quality and sheer rarity! We've never seen an antique heart charm like it and this rare Marcasite heart is definitely a prize to covet!
