A stunning small vintage 9ct gold Masonic Orb pendant in excellent condition

Fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1981 this has been professionally cleaned and polished and looks fabulous

This particular design is also known as a “Masonic Ball” or “Golden Orb.”

This unusual spherical piece is meticulously designed and precisely crafted, unfolding to reveal a cross-shaped pendant when opened. Its unique 3-dimensional design resembles a solid golden ball from the outside, with decorative “arms” hugging the top.

Each arm ends in a trefoil pin, which hooks into the surface of the orb. When unpinned and opened, the cross inside is formed by six pyramidal links, each side engraved with traditional Masonic symbols.

A simple gold ring at the top of the piece allows it to hang from a favorite chain. A very unique piece with fascinating symbolism, this stylish pendant would make a special addition to any collection!

Measurements: The pendant measures 10.8mm in diameter not including the suspension loop when closed and 29 x 17mm when opened.

Weighs 3.6gms

Freemasonry is a fraternal society that historically ranked the qualifications of masons dating back to the Medieval ages. Each body of members is referred to as a “lodge” that conducts regular meetings and business.

Freemasonry describes itself as “a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.” Traditional manual tools such as squares, compasses, trowels, and levels are common symbols that represent stonemasons are common motifs in their historic relics.

Although Freemasonry is often associated with early groups such as the Knights Templar, the organization is still very much intact in the modern day. However, antique and ancient Masonic heirlooms are rare finds and have now become very collectible

    This is one of the best items I have ever bought! The orb is the size of a field pea and in beautiful condition, so detailed. I have never seen one this size before and I was so glad to get it. I wear it with an antique gold ball locket. It looks awesome. It came WEEKS before I anticipated its delivery. I am SO pleased!
