I am proud to offer this extremely rare, Antique Victorian/Art Nouveau era, 14K gold enameled 3D Ladybug charm that was crafted by A.J. Hedges Co. jewelers for Cartier around the turn of the 20th century. A.J. Hedges was located at 6 Maiden Lane in NYC, and also had a location in Newark, NJ. This magnificent charm is exceptionally detailed. The enamel is 100% original as well as the jump ring which is hallmarked “CARTIER”, as this company also crafted jewelry for Cartier and Tiffany back in the day. The belly is stamped with the 14K AJ Hedges hallmark. This little antique 14K lady beetle charm retains all its original aged patina and has not been cleaned or polished. It is museum quality, a one of a kind treasure, and a must have for the serious charm collector’s collection.
