movable book of matches enamel and 14k gold charm


The Story

A fantastic charm made from 14k yellow gold, this miniature book of matches mimics the real thing. With great attention to detail, the hinged front opens to reveal a row of individual matches topped with a little dot of red enamel. The front is hand engraved "MAY 6, 1938" for a sweet and personalized element.

A super cute size, it measures 0.73 inches tall with its bale. A fantastic charm to add to your charm bracelet, wear as a necklace, or stacked with your favorite pieces.
