Antique 9ct Rose Gold Sharks Tooth Pendant Circa 1900

*Please note boxes are for display only unless otherwise stated*

Constructed around the first decade of the 20th century from 9ct rose gold and a Great White (we believe) Sharks tooth.

After Charles Darwins ‘On the origin of the Species’ was published in 1859 there followed a fascination by the Victorians for natural history and biological enthusiasm.  Gentleman of the day began traveling the world drawing, describing and collecting animal and plant specimens.

Our early jewellers, with good reason, capitalised on this enthusiasm and began crafting these desirable pieces in gold and sometimes silver.

This early piece would almost definitely be Australian in manufacture however there are no hallmarks to attribute a particular maker.

With fine decorative scrolled chasing to the pale rose gold capping, original jump ring for a chain and the the tooth itself which is in excellent condition with all its little serrated edging intact.

3.2cm x 1.9cm with round jump ring
3.37 Grams
Tests as 9ct
Very good antique condition.  The tooth is in excellent condition.  Gold capping is a pale rose gold in hue, in between a yellow and rose colour.  No issues to note.
