9ct Gold Victorian Style Charm Hook, Handmade 9k Twisted Safety Pendant for Charms.Add to Wishlist
Wonderful charm hook crafted in 9 carat gold. This piece is modelled on an antique hook that would have been found on a chain or bracelet in the Victorian and Edwardian era. Each of these is made by hand in the traditional style, drawing and twisting the wire to get the shape required. The wires are bent around in a beautiful shape with a ball on the end and a jump ring at the top through which a chain can be added. The neck of each ring is pinched with a jump ring which fits over the ball end to keep charms more secure. These are made to order and take 3-4 weeks to complete.
This is a modern piece which we've made by hand, milling, twisting and bending the wire. These are not cast pieces and the incredible skill of our jeweller can be seen in each piece! Because they are truly handmade each is very slightly different. A small hook can be tensioned so that the hook is very pinched and narrow to help secure the charms. In the larger hooks the wire is less sprung by it's nature so we've fitted a little jump ring to help keep charms and pendants secure.
Hallmarked for 9 carat gold with our own hallmark, held at the London assay office. The gold used is recycled from broken Victorian pieces and is a light rosy colour, somewhere between modern yellow and modern rose gold. We can make a yellow or rose gold on request.
