Playful gold pendant in the shape of a carriage, Italy circa 1980
This vintage pendant immediately made us think of the fairy tale of Cinderella. There, a fairy godmother transforms a pumpkin into a magnificent carriage with which Cinderella drives to the royal ball where she meets her prince charming. Our pendant is also in the shape of a nostalgic carriage and its noble materials would make it more than suitable for any princess. The little vehicle is forged from high karat yellow gold. Glass stones in the color of light blue turquoise and dark blue lapis lazuli occupy the windows and the movable wheels of the pendant. According to the stamping the little carriage was made in Italy. With a large eyelet it can be worn on a chain or you can have it attached to a charm bracelet. The pendant was created in the years around 1960 and is very well preserved. It is an ideal gift for all ladies who would like to feel like Cinderella themselves.
A charm bracelet is a chain-link bracelet worn on the wrist and used to attach small pendants called jou-jous or charms. The symbols attached can have different meanings, and serve as gifts of love or good luck charmsl. The charms often serve as reminders of people and places. The name probably comes from the fact that the components were originally "begged" (solicited from other people) by the wearer.
