This is a very special charm designed for someone who loves the Swan Lake ballet, or perhaps for someone who has danced it. The outer design is a graceful swan in sterling silver, wings extended ever-so slightly so you can see the fan of feathers as she swims by on the tranquil waters.
The real magic happens when the charm is opened to reveal a teeny tiny ballerina inside! The effect is absolutely enchanting. The hand wrought hinge and clasp are still on lovely working order. This is a vintage piece from the 1940s, and she is ready to glide smoothly into the spotlight once again.
This swan lake ballet charm measures approximately 20 mm from nose to tail. That translates to .75 inches) long and she weighs 3 grams. This piece is tested to confirm .925 silver content. It was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips were used.
