This 10k pink gold slide is ready for a collector to add to their collection. The cork is no longer in the slide so I have it set up as a pendant, otherwise it is in original condition. It hangs like a hidden bail pendant would, on a thin chain. It layers nicely as well. The slide holes measure 3.4 - 3.5 mm in diameter.
Pearl: Natural Seed
Measurements: 6 @ 1.6 - 1.3 mm
Chain sold separately
Dimensions: 1.7 x 5.2 mm
Metal: 10k pink gold
Weight: 0.4 gram
Condition Rating: 6 (original condition, cork is no longer inside the holes)
Thanks for looking!!!
Antique Victorian 10k Gold Pearl Slide Pendant
Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never appear as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
