The Leaning Tower of Pisa is an iconic building because it is still standing, against all odds. A symbol of resilience, it balances magically, and is sturdy even though it doesn’t appear to be. It’s stood tall since 1173 and has even survived multiple earthquakes! It is an example of the beauty that can be found in imperfection.
This little charm has incredible, lifelike detail. Rows of windows are carved into the 18k gold, and each of the eight floors are visible. Not only are the details accurate, but they create a beautiful pattern that catches the light and makes the gold sparkle.
The charm weighs 3.10 grams, and is approximately 1” tall and 1/4” wide. It has a 7.75 x 4.65 mm oval bail, allowing it to hang wonderfully on a chain, either alone or stacked with other charms. It is marked on the bottom with “18k” and an unidentified maker’s mark. A vintage charm made in Italy.
This is the perfect charm to represent a trip to Italy. Or, perhaps, the Leaning Tower of Pisa rings true to your resilient outlook on life: still standing, against all odds!
