This lovely St Christopher necklace is marked for 9 carat gold on the chain and on the reverse of the pendant. St Christopher is, of course, the patron saint of travellers.
The delicate chain measures 18” (45cms) long. It is marked ‘9k’ on the ring clasp and the adjacent tag carries British import 9 carat gold marks. I suspect that the chain was originally from Italy. Together with the pendant it weighs 1.6 grams.
The oval pendant measures 11/16” (1.8cms )long, including the ring, and ½” (1.2cms) across.
On the front is a delightful raised image of St Christopher carrying the Christ child across the river. The edge is delicately fluted. The back is plain except for the mark ‘9ct’ which indicates that it is definitely English.
In fine vintage condition this lovely piece would make an excellent gift. It will arrive in a gift box.
