This fabulous sterling silver ingot pendant is hallmarked for 1978 and a great piece of original statement jewellery, an absolute classic of the era and it comes with the original handmade long chunky Belcher chain.
The pendant has a full set of oversized English hallmarks on the front which is an integral part of the design. These bullion bar pendants typically came in 1/2 ounce (15g) and 1 ounce (30g) sizes and were created to coincide with the silver jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 1978 and quickly became very fashionable in Britain!
The ingot is the 1/2 ounce size, it has its original large oval bale and it suspends from a top quality Belcher chain that is handmade and is the perfect length for layering with your neck mess or wearing alone as a statement piece. Fabulously retro, a stylish accessory that can be worn by a man or a woman.
