This is a wonderful old stone-set gold fob ready to be strung on a chain.
Whether it's a watch chain or a necklace is up to you!
The heavy piece dates to the Victorian era and is beautifully decorated with an ornate daisy flower blossom and curled rose motif. The bottom is set with a 16 x 12 mm dark amethyst, which has beautiful colour.
Fob measures 1&1/4" tall by 3/4" across. Weight: 10.3 grams. There is a good-sized gold jump ring to the top. Fob is unmarked but tests as 8K-9K gold.
Very good condition. The jump ring may be original and appears to have been soldered at the ends in antiquity. Stone has very slight wear, but no nicks or chips.
