This truly unique 'one-of-a-kind' Sterling Silver (marked 925) Keeper/Pendant is completely hand made with an Acid Etched and Engraved design of leaves featuring a central cabochon cut and set polished quartz, and dates to c1970's.
The pale yellow (almost clear) cabochon is a polished and set piece of Rutile Quartz. Rutile quartz contains sparkling needle-like enclosures which shoot off shards of reflected light in all directions.
With a substantial bale and secure hinged clasp, the keeper opens to display plain Silver surfaces. It could easily hold 'special' tiny trinkets, medicines or even photos.
The back has no damage but it has some discoloration where a price label once sat and also some label glue residue. Both will disappear with a good polish and the Vintage condition is very good..
