Discover our vintage pendants to transform your chain into a beautiful necklace. Vintage pendants can be small, simple charms to wear on a bracelet or chain, or larger ones like photo holders. They open up and you can slip in the small object of your choice to keep a memory that is dear to you. They can be made of glass, silver, gold, pearls and stones. The most classic ones are oval, but they also exist in the shape of a heart, in the round and even in the shape of a book.
Antique pendants can also have original shapes: zodiac animals, initials, everyday objects, symbolic flowers, pearls and stones in solitary. And do not forget the perfect Love medal from Augis !
