Sacred Heart : Large Vintage Italian “Faith, Hope & Charity” Pendant in 9ct by Unoaerre

AU$250.00

An unusually large vintage “Faith, Hope and Charity” charm made by Italian design house Unoaerre, famous for high quality gold jewellery for generations.

This iteration of the popular symbols is unusual for its large size, and for the flaming heart – something I haven’t seen before. Traditionally the Cross is symbolic of Faith, the anchor for Hope and the heart for Charity. A flaming heart usually symbolises passion, but in the Catholic tradition a flaming heart is also known as the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ.

Manufacture:
Each of the charms is modelled in 9ct yellow gold and of hollow but sturdy construction. The three charms are held together by the bail at the top, which is hallmarked 375 for 9ct gold and with makers mark Unoaerre.

The charm has a total drop of 22mm.
The Cross measures 18.13mm x 10.8mm x 2.65mm
The Anchor measures 18.3mm x 13mm x 2.15mm
