This vintage (circa 1940) large sterling heart charm features stars and stripes with the words, "God Bless America". The heart measures 13/16ths of an inch by 3/4 of an inch and is marked sterling (very worn). The back has been engraved with the name "Esther". The ring that attaches to the heart has a split at the base. This is an easy fix by a jeweler. This ring is very sturdy and the heart charm is quite wearable as is. The price reflects this issue. Condition is very good with light surface wear. This is guaranteed to be a period charm and is not a reproduction.
