Women love him. Men love him. He's so famous, he goes by one name. DAVID. He's been called the world's most beautiful man and who can argue with this chiseled face. And that hair.

The statue of David was crafted from 1501-1504 by Michelangelo when he was just 26 years old. Though Michelangelo’s genius as a sculptor had already been proven two years earlier when he completed the Pietà for St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, it was the David sculpture that made the young artist famous. Even today, 516 years after its completion, David's fame endures, drawing curious travelers from around the world to Florence for a glimpse of greatness.

Here's a glimpse of David's face on this medallion pendant necklace. The profile confirms his handsomeness. The word DAVID is on the right.

The metal appears to be a mixed alloy with a blackened patina over it. In a few scratch spots on the back, you can see silver but it doesn't test for silver. The pendant is heavy and non-magnetic.

We added a heavy solid sterling silver link chain to the pendant. The pendant has a ring on the back and was probably a souvenir intended to be hung on the wall. But a face like this deserves to be seen so David easily becomes a necklace.

The chain measures 18 inches long. It's 5mm wide. It's marked 925 ITALY. The entire necklace weighs 80 grams (the chain is about 15 grams by itself).

A few little dings to the medallion's surface, mostly on the back.

Excellent vintage condition.
