An endearing puffy heart charm or pendant, with the swishy tail that makes it not any ordinary heart, but a “witches heart”. During the 1700’s and 1800’s jewels featuring witches hearts were given by sweethearts to say that they had been “bewitched” by their lover. This charm is a vintage take on the witches heart; a three dimensional 9ct yellow gold pendant made in Italy. It dates to the 1980s/1990s.
The construction is hollow, but this heart is made of good thick gold – resistant to bumps and scratches no matter how much you may wear your heart on your sleeve. The pendant measures 23mm from the top of the bail to the tip of the heart. It is 14.25mm wide and 5.84mm thick. It weighs 1.2 grams. The bail is soldered closed.
If you require a chain to match an optional vintage s-link chain is available. The chain is slightly rosier in hue to the heart. It is 51.5cm long and weighs 3.3 grams.
