Vintage 14K Gold Tassel Fob Pendant w Oversized Ring 4.5g + 16 Green Cord Chain
In January, 2019 we started the slow but satisfying process of listing Eytan's inventory on-line so that he can semi-retire and focus on custom designs. Please check back as we're listing new items every week -- all fine jewelry in a range of styles and all priced with an emphasis on fairness and realism! Eytan has a bunch of these old tassels in 14 karat and 18 karat gold, with different caps and fringe styles. They probably date from the 1950's or thereabouts. He made this tassel into a nice pendant or fob by replacing the small top ring with a sealed, oversized half-round ring of recycled gold. This gives the tassel a more polished look and greatly increases its versatility, since the ring will slip over most chain hardware.
The top cap tapers in a bit at the sides and is scored with a diamond pattern. The fringe is 10 strands of soft wheat chain, finished at the ends with round beads. The twisted green cord chain shown in the photos (made out of silk or rayon, we're not sure which) is included. It's 16 long and has a brass push-in tube closure.
Length (including top ring): 1.8 (46mm). Width (at widest point on cap): 0.3 (8mm). Marks : None; we guarantee the pendant to be 100% 14 karat yellow gold.
Weight : 4.5 grams (not including the chain, of course). These tassels have been floating around the shop for years, but they've never been worn, except by our loyal and devoted shop mannequin, Ludvinka.
