if you love vintage, you’ll love these very cool, very old elements. they are solid silver, which by today’s standards is even more silver than sterling (sterling is about 90% silver). my vendor on these only deals in very vintage charms and it’s so fun to go see them when they’re in town and dig through their trays of these things. they had a huge ring of these charms and I take some off and pair them together so that you get a matching set. by the time I’m done, my hands are pretty dirty, cuz like I said, very vintage. lol not to worry, I’ve cleaned up each charm for you.
