This delightful, trio of enamelled charms are English and marked for 9 carat gold.
The cross, anchor and heart motifs started to be popular in Victorian times and represent Faith, Hope and Charity (Love). They are all attached to a central ring and weigh 1.7 grams.
The cross (Faith) is 5/8"(1.5cms) long and is ornamented with fine lines on both sides. It bears the leopard’s head mark for the London assay office and the date letter ‘C’ for 1977.
The heart (Charity or Love) is 3/8" (0.9cms) long. It carries the crown mark and ‘.375’ for 9 carat gold.
Finally the anchor (Hope) is 5/8"(1.5cms) long and also bears marks which I am unable to decipher.
These measurements include the ring at the top of each one. They are joined to a ring and then there is a bail for attaching to a chain.
These lovely charms would make a wonderful gift for a special religious occasion. They are special both for their religious significance and their great condition. They come to you tissue wrapped in a gift box.
