movable abacus 14k gold and plastic bead charm


The Story

We love a charm with movement and this vintage 14k yellow gold abacus is a fun find. Colorful plastic beads move on the wires, so it works as a real counting machine. 

Abaci are so old, historians don't know exactly when or where they were first invented. This one, from circa the 1950s, is a miniature and wearable version of ancient technology.

A sweet and colorful charm to add to your charm bracelet, wear as a necklace, earring, or stacked with your favorite pieces.

How do you want to wear your new charm? Choose a 16” or 18” chain or just the charm itself.
