Vintage Gold Doctor's Bag Locket Pendant

I found this precious golden bauble on my last buying trip, in England. It was a misty day, but one of those English ones, so the gray clouds seemed cheerful and happy. I walked the city to arrive at the Sunday morning market a mere moments after it opened, stopping for a coffee along the way. The booth of first person I wanted to see was crowded, so I waited (im)patiently, standing just off to the side. As I waiting I looked through the case at the next booth over and spotted this wonderful locket. At first glance, I assumed this was meant for a lady with the initials of MD, meaning it was to be rich in history, and loved dearly. My mother has the initials ‘MD’ and so I asked to look at it, thinking of her birthday just a few weeks away. When he handed it to me to have a look I was struck by how weighty it was, and when I opened it I was delighted by the contents, it turned out that MD wasn’t for a person, it was for an education!

This unique vintage 9 karat gold doctor’s bag pendant was handcrafted in England, in 1945. The front and back are both engraved with the letters, ‘MD’, which stand for ‘Medical Doctor’. This fun pendant opens to reveal three golden doctor tools! Inside, there is a syringe, a scissors, and a stethoscope. This pendant measures 26 x 23.4 x 12.2 mm and weighs 15.6 grams. It is fully hallmarked with the mark for London, the gold purity marks, ‘9’, and ‘.375’, the date letter, ‘k’, and a maker’s mark.

For the medical school graduate in your life, or just a fabulous charm to keep all to yourself, because honestly, it’s adorable, this pendant is perfect!
