This is an unusual item: it's a charm or a small pendant and tests as 14K gold. The shape is somewhat like a hanging lamp fixture with the top measuring 10mm wide, the bottom 5 mm wide. On the front are the letters H T W S S T K S. These stand for Hiram, Tyrian, Widow's Son, Sent To King Solomon. The charm is attributed to the Royal Arch Masons. It has been monogrammed F.A.D. (or T.A.D.) in script letters. From top to bottom, it is 14mm.

HTWSSTKS is an acronym with connections to the Masonic Temple, specifically Royal Arch Masons.

As it turns out, all third degree Freemasons study the story of a man named Hiram Abiff (a.k.a. Hiram the Widow’s Son.) According to legend, Hiram was chief architect for the Temple of King Solomon. When bad guys tried to squeeze the secret masonic passwords out of Hiram, he valiantly refused to tell them. As a result, the bad guys killed poor Hiram. In Masonic teachings, Hiram’s story is held up as an example of loyalty.
