10K GTE Employee Award Charm Pendant Vintage1960s Jewelry
General Telephone & Electric Company awarded these service award charms/pendants during the 1960s and early 1970s. I believe the two stars indicates two years of service. The pendant has a 1" diameter and is marked on the back "10K Emblem" (I believe this means that only the emblem is 10K, and not the entire pendant). The pendant is in excellent condition, with only a couple of very fine scratches on the back. It will be shipped in a gift box.
GTE was at one time the second largest telephone company in the US. It later merged with Bell Atlantic and eventually part of the current-day "Verizon."
