This is a precious 14k gold medallion charm from Kirsten’s Corner signature “Cute as a Button” collection. It's handcrafted from a Victorian-era button and features what looks like a whippet or greyhound dog. The face of the dog has striking ruby eyes that offer a nice touch of color to the 14k golden backdrop. The back of the charm has the original detail from the button, offering a rustic design touch. The ruby measures 1 mm and the entire pedant has a 14.5 mm diameter. This piece has a solid weight, 6 grams, allowing it to hang well.
Button charms were a fad in the Victorian-era and thought of as "memory strings". They are a unique way to add personal meaning and symbolism to fashion. This particular pendant-charm would be great for any dog lover. If you like this charm, check out our additional medallions that are part of our “Cute as a Button” collection.
