This large 9ct antique Gold Masonic orb pendant is more than what it first appears at first glance!
A 9ct Gold gilded sphere sits sweetly on a gold necklace or even on a charm bracelet. The warm Gold colour has a lovely feel to it and it has been topped with a beautiful Gold engraved crown.
The secret to this beautiful pendant orb is that it has a hidden fastening that allows you to open it up. It drops down into 6 individually engraved pyramids forming a cross revealing the secret symbols of the Free Mason Society.
This accessory is utterly unique with a particular mysterious quality to it that we can't quite put our fingers on, but this rare piece is brilliantly different as it is beautiful and we just can't get enough!
