movable rock crystal grindstone and 14k gold charm


The Story

Made in the form of a tiny tool, this 14 karat yellow gold charm is a rare and special piece. The grindstone, a device used to sharpen tools, sits on four legs and has a faceted piece of rock crystal. The clear stone moves when the handle is spun.

Made sometime from the late Victorian era through the early 20th century, we've never seen this charm before. It's in great shape for its age, especially with moving parts.

Super detailed and well made, it measures 0.55 inches tall and is a great charm to add to your charm bracelet, wear as a necklace, or stacked with your favorite pieces.
