This antique charm pendant is as interesting as it is unique!
In its closed position it appears to be a simple sphere held within a gold cross, but this treasure is hiding a secret... Pull the ball down and this Masonic pendant opens out into a cross formed of six pyramids, held together with individual hinges. The Sterling Silver interior has been delicately hand engraved with well defined masonic symbols, which all have their own meanings to be deciphered.
This is an absolutely gorgeous example of a very rare type of jewellery. The exterior and interior are in fantastic condition and the ball stays firmly closed when not in use, so this is a pendant that can be worn with confidence.
A beautiful piece of antique history filled with deep meaning and spiritual character.

This rare and unusual fob is in fantastic condition throughout. It stays tightly closed when not in use and it opens out smoothly and securely.

The Gold outer shell is free from scratches or damage and the silver interior is all as it should be, with the masonic inscriptions clearly visible and unworn.
Overall, a wonderful piece of jewellery with a real sense of purpose and history.
