Vintage 1960's 14 Kt. Yellow Gold French Can-Can Dancers & Paris Eiffel Tower Pendant-Charm. 11.7 Grams - Pendant from the Estate Collection of a fine Princeton, NJ jeweler.
A most unusual vintage pendant-charm with three Can-Can dancers as they perform at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, since 1889 this was the birthplace of the French Can-Can. Behind the three dancers a theater stage design with finely detailed open drapes frame the performing dancers. Behind the center dancer stands a three dimensional, also detailed, Eiffel Tower making it clear these are the famous French Can-Can dancers in full costume with frilly petticoats and hats kicking their legs high into the air. For a finishing touch, five precious gemstones prong set along the larger circle, three emeralds and two rubies.
The construction of this pendant-charm is very intricate with much to look at within the two circles and 1/2" "bridge" that connects the circles along the bottom. Originally designed as a charm with a single plain ring that was marked 14K, the charm was made into a pendant with a graceful gold butterfly bale with 1/4" opening. Some of my photographs show it worn as a pendant on a chain, please note - the gold chain in the photos is not included in this listing, it is the pendant alone that weighs a substantial 11.7 grams and comes inside a red velour box.
Since it is so three dimensional, wearing it on a chain makes it an important piece of fine vintage gold jewelry instead of hanging from a bracelet. The measurement of the larger circle is 1-1/4" diameter, the total height including the bale is 1-1/2". The measurement of the smaller circle holding the Eiffel Tower and drapes is 1" in diameter.
This pendant would make a wonderful Anniversary or Birthday gift if a visit to Paris holds special meaning.
