Back from my spring inventory trips to Europe with many antique treasures, hand picked one at a time. Many more coming soon - thanks for stopping by! : )


Today I am listing an assortment of little charms and pendants! All antique Victorian era - these would be a great addition to a neckmess / neckstack or a charm bracelet, or a dainty minimalist vibe worn alone. Some are quite petite (please note the measurements!) Some are components from a pin or another piece that I acquired as a little antique part or finding, and I had a loop added to make it wearable. I never scrap antique jewelry , even if it is imperfect or incomplete, and with the little loop, it can now be worn and enjoyed for another 100 years!

Sweet little puffy heart pendant in the shape of a witch's heart set with center red paste. It looks like a garnet and we usually see garnets instead of red paste since they were affordable during the period but it did not test as such so I am selling it as paste to be safe. Found in France with their hallmarks for 18k and a 750 stamp on the loop which is the numerical hallmark used in Europe for 18k gold.

These heart shapes were ever popular during the Victorian era and symbolized love, protection, loyalty, etc. and were used at times during a betrothal. The witch's heart description refers to the flared, slightly curved bottom of the hearts and the stones are custom cut to match!

As seen in the photos, the jump rings can be somewhat small, something to note depending on your chain size, or the buyer can add an additional larger jump ring. My favorite way to swap these out is clipped to a dog clip / clasp - I have a few dog clip / clasps listed separately in the shop and they work well to add to a chain and add multiple charms or mix and match charms with just the clasp instead of having to run them on a chain each time.

Listing is for the one item in the cover photo, while the group shot helps to show scale and shows some of the other pieces I have available.

Antique props, chain, etc. not included. Please note the measurements as I have small hands and it is difficult to show scale in the photos.

Weight: 0.85g
Height: 13mm
(This measurement is top to bottom including the attached loop but not including the dangling jump ring / bale)


A few scuffs to the garnet under magnification but no dings or dents.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )

Please feel free watch @mouseshouseantiques on Instagram for inventory drops, sneak peaks and previews! And check out my website as I can add more pics there so you can get extra looks : )

Thanks so much for looking at my items!
