A fob is an adornment or a seal that hangs from the ribbon or chain of a pocket watch. Its purpose is to decorate or add weight to the watch chain itself making it easier for the watch to be withdrawn from a pocket.
This is a magnificent fob pendant from the Victorian period. This large citrine fob is made of 10kt yellow/pink gold and has a beautiful yet simple design. At the base is a beautiful citrine stone, which displays a rich color and is faceted to create a prism-like effect. The vibrant gold framework is beautifully detailed with and hand-etched details. Attached to the top is a large gold "O" ring, allowing the fob to be easily hung and worn from a favorite chain. The fob hangs 1 ½" long (including the gold ring at the top) and 1" wide. The citrine stone at the base measures ¾ " by ½ " within the gold bezel setting. The chain is not included. This is spectacular Victorian piece; it looks very striking when worn and is perfect for any fob collector!
