The red and white 3D enameled candy cane charm pendant is crafted in pure 14k solid gold, from Apples of Gold Jewelry, makes for a cute and timely Christmas gift! The candy cane portion of the pendant measures 7/8" tall x 3/8" wide. With the hoop/bail, the overall height is 1" tall, with a gold weight of approx. 1 gram.
Did you know that the candy cane is shaped like a shepherd's hook, with legend stating the iconic red color represents the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and white stands for purity? The tradition apparently began in 1670 when the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral in Germany handed out candy canes to his children singers in order to keep them quiet during the Living Creche ceremony, a children's pageant and a nativity scene focused on the baby Jesus.
Add a matching 0.9mm 14k solid gold box chain necklace in 18" or 20" to match (optional).
