This rare Georgian new moon carved Carnelian curved padlock charm pendant is nothing like we've seen before! Super rare and highly coveted, this exquisite antique padlock dates back to the Regency era, 1811-1820 when aristocracy flourished and exquisite like this craftsmanship was reserved for only the upper echelons of society.

The smoothly carved slab of Carnelian really packs a punch, with her smooth lines, perfect proportions and  fabulous burnt sienna orange tones!

Associated with hope new beginnings, the crescent moon would have been cut, polished & set by hand, beautifully embellished with lustrous natural seed Pearls in typical Georgian crimped Gold settings.

We simply love this antique padlock charm! The epitome of elegance and exceptional craftsmanship!
