The crane is deemed a highly symbolic bird representing happiness, longevity and eternal youth. A popular subject in the tradition of origami, ancient Japanese legend believes that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted one wish.
This whimsical 10k gold crane charm or pendant was once an antique stick pin (circa 1900-1915) before our jeweler removed the pin stem and welded on a 10k gold bail. With exquisite attention to detail, this piece is finely and accurately rendered. The crane boasts a glimmering garnet eye. Additional garnet and pearl accents decorate its chest.
The pendant measures 1 inch from top to bottom by 0.5 inches wide. It is in very good condition and we are providing the option to purchase it with or without the 15 inch 14k gold chain shown in the photos.
Materials: Garnet, Silver, Gold.
