Vintage Tiffany & Co Pegasus Charm
Okay, hands up, I did not realise this had an oil company link when I bought it... just liked the red pegasus and it caught my eye... on researching it two things of note came up: 1) It's a 35 years service token from the Socony Mobil oil company, crafted in 9ct gold and set with a single diamond. 2) These were actually made by Tiffany & Co, originally as a stud or lapel pin that someone's gone to the trouble of converting into a charm. So there you go. It's a great-looking little charm if you can get around the stupid fossil fuel link. Circa 1970.
FYI we'll donate the proceeds of the sale of this charm directly to Greenpeace.

A healthy patina and the odd scuff/scrape are quite normal... it's part of their charm!
