This is a precious 14k gold medallion charm from Kirsten’s Corner signature “Cute as a Button” collection. It is handcrafted from a Victorian era button and features a portrait of a boar. The face of the boar has striking ruby eyes that offer a nice touch of color to the 14k golden backdrop. The ruby measures 1 mm and the entire pedant has a 14.5 mm diameter. This piece has a nice weight, 3.6 grams, allowing it 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.
